Machine learning on a mission

Holly Auten/LLNL

Machine learning uses computers to learn from data and make predictions about the environment. As the world generates more data, interpretation becomes more difficult. A smart machine—one that adapts to new information on the fly—can speed up processing and analysis times and improve its accuracy in identification and prediction tasks. Although commercial and consumer applications of ML are numerous, Livermore’s mission space also presents ample opportunities for exploiting ML tools, often requiring new development beyond standard applications.
