New call for HPC4EnergyInnovation proposals

April 1, 2019 -  
The Department of Energy (DOE) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ( LLNL ) today announced the spring 2019 call for proposals for the High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) Program, including three of its pillar programs. Managed by LLNL in partnership with other national...

HPC4Manufacturing Program names four awardees for latest round of DOE funding

March 7, 2019 -  
The High Performance Computing for Manufacturing Program ( HPC4Mfg ) today announced the recipients of $1.2 million in federal funding for four public/private projects aimed at solving key manufacturing challenges in steelmaking and aluminum production through supercomputing. The summer 2018...

LLNL/UCSF-developed implants enable unprecedented recordings of brain activity

March 4, 2019 -  
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ( LLNL ) scientists, working with researchers at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), have developed a novel system for recording widespread brain activity, using high-density implantable devices to collect real-time data over longer timescales and...

Feb. 26, 2019 -  
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ( LLNL ) scientists and engineers have created the first research-grade, open-architecture multibeam metal 3D printer and are developing advanced diagnostics to understand the mechanics behind the multibeam process under a project funded by the Air Force...

Researchers look to computing’s past to unlock 3D-printed mechanical logic gates for the future

Feb. 20, 2019 -  
Taking a page from the past, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists and engineers are combining mechanical computing with 3D printing as part of an effort to create “sentient” materials that can respond to changes in their surroundings, even in extreme environments that would destroy...

Going deep: Lab employees get an introduction to world of machine learning, neural networks

Feb. 1, 2019 -  
Deep learning is one of the most popular and widely used machine learning methods due to its success with autonomous vehicles, speech recognition and image classification, to name a few emergent technologies. But what exactly is deep learning, and how can it best be applied to Lab projects?...

3D printing method creates objects in one piece

Jan. 31, 2019 -  
It looks like something you might find aboard the Starship Enterprise. A projector beams a three-dimensional video into a container of photosensitive resin. The video plays while the container rotates for a few minutes — then the fluid drains, leaving behind a complete, fully formed 3D object...

Playing video games may help researchers find personalized medical treatment for sepsis

Dec. 18, 2018 -  
A deep learning approach originally designed to teach computers how to play video games better than humans could aid in developing personalized medical treatment for sepsis, a disease that causes about 300,000 deaths per year and for which there is no known cure. Lawrence Livermore National...

Lab develops metamaterials that change mechanical properties under magnetic fields

Dec. 7, 2018 -  
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ( LLNL ) researchers have introduced a new class of metamaterials that can nearly instantly respond and stiffen 3D-printed structures when exposed to a magnetic field, a development that could be applied to next-generation helmets, wearable armor and a host of...
