Department of Energy Announces $6.4 Million for Artificial Intelligence Research in High Energy Physics

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $6.4 million in funding for three initial Department of Energy national lab-led team projects in artificial intelligence research for high energy physics. These awards support the DOE Office of Science (SC) initiative in artificial intelligence research to use AI techniques to deliver scientific discoveries that would not otherwise be possible and to broaden participation in high energy physics research.

“Artificial intelligence research is essential to maximize the science of DOE SC funded research programs,” said Harriet Kung, Acting Associate Director of Science for High Energy Physics. “These awards represent new partnerships between researchers at DOE National Labs, universities, and the private sector that will enable the next discoveries in high energy physics.”

Projects include:
