Fahim AI on-chip data processing work

The U.S. Department of Energy awarded Farah Fahim an Early Career Research Award to investigate how deploying neural networks and machine learning on a particle detector can allow data processing at source. Her work could make data processing at detectors more efficient, improving fundamental research at physics facilities like the LHC at CERN.

The Fermilab particle accelerator complex set a record beam power earlier this year, thanks to the high-quality work of numerous teams and individuals. The successful completion of the NuMI 2020 shutdown work prepared the target facility for this achievement.

The 2021 All Engineers’ Retreat takes place from Feb. 21-27. Registration is open. Zoom links will be sent following registration. Sessions will cover interesting projects at Fermilab and engineers’ contributions. Retreat hosts and attendees will also cover opportunities, address concerns and receive feedback about the lab’s efforts in building an engineering community. Active participation is encouraged, and new proposals and ideas are welcome. There will be a specific session dedicated to engineering talks on finding research and collaborative synergies among…

From March 25-27, the Fermilab professional chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers will host the virtual Regional Leadership Development Conference. This is a great professional development and networking opportunity for Fermilab employees and users. The conference agenda includes career, leadership and professional-development workshops. Early bird registration is open until Feb. 23.

Fermilab plays a key role in the Quantum Science Center, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The center unites Oak Ridge’s powerhouse capabilities in supercomputing and materials science with Fermilab’s world-class high-energy physics instrumentation and measurement expertise and facilities. Drawing on their experience building and operating experiments in cosmology and particle physics and in quantum information science, the Fermilab team is engaging in QSC efforts to develop novel, advanced quantum technologies.
