Machine learning speeds up and enhances physics calculations

Benny Evangelista/LLNL and Charlie Osolin/LLNL

Interpreting data from NIF’s cutting-edge high energy density science experiments relies on physics calculations that are so complex they can challenge LLNL supercomputers, which stand among the best in the world. A collaboration between LLNL and French researchers found a novel way to incorporate machine learning and neural networks to significantly speed up inertial confinement fusion physics simulations.
