The new methods […]

Imperial College London researchers have demonstrated how machine learning could help design lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells with better performance. The new machine learning algorithm allows researchers to explore possible designs for the microstructure of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries, before running 3D simulations that help researchers make changes to improve performance. Improvements could include […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have developed a method that uses artificial intelligence to design next-generation heat-pump compressors. Their method can cut the pumps’ power requirement by around 25%. In Switzerland, 50 to 60% of new homes are equipped with heat pumps. These systems draw in thermal energy from the surrounding environment […]

Machine learning can help bring to Earth the clean fusion energy that powers the sun and stars. Researchers are using this form of artificial intelligence to create a model for rapid control of plasma – the state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions – that fuels fusion reactions. Machine learning […]
