ESnet Aids Gamma Ray Detector Experiment

ESnet is getting in on the ground floor of the upcoming Gamma Ray Energy Tracking Array (GRETA) experiment, now being built by nuclear physicists at Berkeley Lab. This collaboration could inform future efforts to design data and networking into observational experiments from the get-go.

The ESnet You've Never Heard Of

Eric Pouyoul runs ESnet's testbed. This sheltered corner of the famously reliable science network is where engineers and scientists are encouraged to think big and break stuff. It's also where Pouyoul cooks up new ideas, lately for the GRETA experiment.

CRD Researchers Describe CO2 Data Pipeline in Nature Scientific Data

CRD researchers outlined enhancements to a data pipeline that distributes carbon flux data. FLUXNET stores, processes, and distributes data collected from around the world to scientists just as far-flung.

CCSE's Jambunathan Makes SLAM Finals

Revathi Jambunathan is a finalist in Berkeley Lab's annual SLAM competition. A post-doctoral fellow with CRD's Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering, Jambunathan's one-slide, three-minute science pitch is about studying pulsars.

Graph Neural Networks Open New Doors in Particle Physics Research

NERSC's Steve Farrell discusses how high energy physics (HEP) studies are already benefitting from machine learning techniques.

Millions for Two SciDAC Institutes

The DOE will provide $57.5 million for two SciDAC institutes in which CRD staff hold leadership positions. Esmond Ng is FASTMath director. Lenny Oliker is RAPIDS2 deputy director.

NERSC Hours go to 16 ALCC Winners

The ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) has awarded 4.45 million NERSC compute hours to studies that range from climate science to quantum chromodynamics and fusion energy.

InTheLoop Returns After Labor Day

InTheLoop is taking a short hiatus through the end of August. Look for the next issue in September after the Labor Day holiday.


ICYMI: Social Media

August is Machine Learning for Science month on social media. Follow us @LBNLcs or follow our campaign hashtag for more: #lbnlAI.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will be big. Its data, too. About 20 terabytes each-and-every night adds up fast. Machine learning will help scientists make sense of all that data.

Machine learning engineer Peter Harrington is working with deep learning methods for surrogate modeling in CRD's Computational Cosmology Center (C3). Berkeley Lab's breadth of research and well-maintained and well-staffed computational division make it the place to be for ML4Sci research like his, says Harrington.
