Three in CRD Named AAAS Fellows

Bert de Jong, John Owens, and Esmond Ng
Three Computational Research Division (CRD) scientists have been named AAAS Fellows. Bert de Jong, John Douglas Owens, and Esmond Ng were among Berkeley Lab's nine to receive the lifetime honor which recognizes scientists, engineers, and innovators for their distinguished achievements toward the advancement or applications of science.

When Qubits Fly

What do you get when you cross a quantum physicist, a networking AI expert, and a computer architect? Hopefully, a solution to one of the most daunting problems in quantum systems. An LDRD team led by CRD's Mekena Metcalf is using artificial intelligence to boost the efficiency of a key process that enables qubits to “fly” across optical fiber.

SC20 a (Virtual) Success for CSA

Best Paper, Best Presentation, and the ACM Gordon Bell Prize are just a few of the awards and accomplishments chalked up by Computing Sciences staff at this year's Supercomputing Conference.

CRD Staff Share in Gordon Bell Prize

CRD staff shared in this year's ACM Gordon Bell Prize. They were part of an international team that used a 100-million atom test-case to demonstrate how their machine learning-based software package, DeePMD-kit, can boost the accuracy and efficiency of large molecular dynamics models.

Join the Lab's Annual Food Drive

Berkeley Lab's virtual holiday food drive is on and that means a little friendly fund-raising competition between areas. You can donate on behalf of “Team CSA” to either the Alameda County Community Food Bank or the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. Competition closes Jan. 8, 2021. The winning area gets a custom Zoom backdrop (and warm fuzzies).
