A Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory new computer simulation forecasts a surprisingly optimistic heat load for future fusion facilities designed to harvest on Earth the fusion energy that powers the sun and stars to generate electricity. Efforts to duplicate the fusion reactions on Earth that power the sun and stars for unlimited energy must contend with […]

Stanford University’s new machine learning method has slashed battery testing times – a key barrier to longer-lasting, faster-charging batteries for electric vehicles – by nearly fifteenfold. Battery performance can make or break the electric vehicle experience, from driving range to charging time to the lifetime of the car. Now, artificial intelligence has made dreams like […]

Happy New Year! DOE/Argonne National Laboratory researchers have turned to the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence to dramatically accelerate battery discovery. The press release likens designing new batteries with the best molecular building blocks for battery components to trying to create a recipe for a new kind of cake, when you have billions […]

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 […]
