After the successful initiation of two new detectors, scientists have begun to envision an expanded suite of neutrino experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.

Attend the live webinar FNAL: Ultrafast Neural Networks for On-Detector Edge Processing in Resource-Constrained Extreme Radiation Environment on Sept. 20, from 10-11:30 a.m. PDT. Fermilab’s Farah Fahim, Giuseppe Di Guglielmo and Nhan Tran will demonstrate in a live webinar hosted by Siemens that a neural network autoencoder model can be implemented in a radiation-tolerant application-specific integrated circuit to perform lossy data compression alleviating the data transmission problem while preserving critical information of the detector energy profile. This AI algorithm enables…

Fermilab employee Joseph Hurd passed away Thursday, Sept. 1, at the age of 33. Joe graduated with a Master of Science in mechanical engineering from Florida State University in 2013 and worked in the National High Magnetic Field Lab for two years before beginning his career at Fermilab in 2015 in the cryogenics department.  In his subsequent seven years working at Fermilab, Joe made major contributions to a variety of cryogenic operations and projects. He was cryogenic spokesperson for both…
