  • Publication number: 20210358647
    Abstract: A machine-learning tool learns from sensors' data of a nuclear reactor at steady state and maps them to controls of the nuclear reactor. The tool learns all given ranges of normal operation and responses for corrective measures. The tool may train another learning tool (or the same tool) that forecasts the behavior of the reactor based on real-time changes (e.g., every 10 seconds). The tool implements an optimization technique for differing half-life materials to be placed in the reactor. The tool maximizes isotope production based on optimal controls of the reactor.

  • Publication number: 20210313016
    Abstract: A processing workflow centered on machine-learning algorithms that identifies a number of chemical features that can best distinguish the presence or absence of a chemical source. These chemical features are a chemical fingerprint that is unique to each source. The analysis workflow is rapid (e.g., fingerprints can be generated in minutes). The analysis workflow has wide-ranging applications such as detecting markers of pollution sources in rivers and fish tissues, forest pathogen outbreaks, and hard-to-diagnose diseases.

  • Publication number: 20210276265
    Abstract: According to examples, an apparatus may include a processor and a memory on which is stored machine readable instructions. The processor may execute the instructions to access a first stereoscopic three-dimensional (3D) image of a surface of a layer of build material particles and a second stereoscopic 3D image of the layer surface, the second stereoscopic 3D image being captured at a later time than the first stereoscopic 3D image. The processor may also generate a 3D deformation map of the layer surface from the first stereoscopic 3D image and the second stereoscopic 3D image and may implement an action based on the generated 3D deformation map of the layer surface.
