DOE Announces $29 Million for Ultramodern Data Analysis Tools

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $29 million to develop new tools to analyze massive amounts of scientific information, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced algorithms. All have the potential to reveal critical new insights—and even new discoveries—in research that can help tackle clean energy, climate, and national security challenges for the American people.

“As research tools like computers or microscopes have gotten more powerful, the amount of data they can gather has gotten overwhelming—and scientists need new capabilities to make sense of it all,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “Advanced analysis methods will help them unlock the full potential behind all this data, so that we can solve even our most complex challenges.”
