Machine learning is revolutionizing data analysis. Recent leaps in driverless car navigation and the voice recognition features of personal assistants are possible because of this form of artificial intelligence. As data sets in the Information Age continue to grow, companies are building tools that make machine learning faster and more efficient. Fermilab is taking cues from industry to improve their own “big data” processing challenges.
A new telescope will take a sequence of snapshots with the world’s largest digital camera, covering the entire visible night sky every few days — and repeating the process for an entire decade. What’s the best way to rapidly and automatically identify and categorize all of the stars, galaxies and other objects captured in these images? Data scientists trained have computers to pick out useful information from these hi-res snapshots of the universe.
Fermilab’s quantum program includes a number of leading-edge research initiatives that build on the lab’s unique capabilities as the U.S. center for high-energy physics and a leader in quantum physics research. On the tour, researchers discussed quantum technologies for communication, high-energy physics experiments, algorithms and theory, and superconducting qubits hosted in superconducting radio-frequency cavities.
From Spektrum, Nov. 2, 2018: Maschinelles Lernen hat bereits bei der Entdeckung des Higgs einen wesentlichen Beitrag geleistet. Teilchenphysiker setzen Verfahren aus diesem Bereich schon seit Jahrzehnten ein. Doch nun erwarten Experten durch lernende Software eine Revolution bei der Datenanalyse.
