Department of Energy Announces $8.5 Million in High-Performance Algorithms for Complex Energy Systems and Processes

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $8.5 million in funding for basic research in the development of randomized algorithms for understanding and improving the properties and behavior of complex energy systems. Problems involving the design of scientific experiments or energy and communication infrastructures can often be viewed as a discrete, networked system of systems that needs to be optimized. Such discrete optimization problems cannot be efficiently solved with conventional algorithms that are not well-suited for graphs, networks, and streaming data.

Department of Energy Awards 18 Million Node-Hours of Computing Time to Support Cutting-Edge Research

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that 18 million node-hours have been awarded to 45 scientific projects under the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) program. The projects, with applications ranging from advanced energy systems to climate change to cancer research, will use DOE supercomputers to uncover unique insights about scientific problems that would otherwise be impossible to solve using experimental approaches.

Department of Energy Invests $1 Million in Artificial Intelligence Research for Privacy-Sensitive Datasets

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $1 million for a one-year collaborative research project to develop artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms for biomedical, personal healthcare, or other privacy-sensitive datasets.

Department of Energy Selects 32 Students for Prestigious Computational Fellowships
