Artificial Intelligence (AI) can speed up the development of safe, clean and virtually limitless fusion energy for generating electricity, claim researchers.
A team of scientists at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and Princeton University are applying deep learning to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks that house the reactions.
“This research opens a promising new chapter in the effort to bring unlimited energy to Earth,” said Steve Cowley, director of PPPL
“AI is exploding across the sciences and now it’s beginning to contribute to the worldwide quest for fusion power,” he added in the current issue of Nature magazine. Read More
