• When laser beams meet plasma: New data addresses gap in fusion research

    December 4, 2019 by

    DECEMBER 2, 2019 by University of Rochester New research from the University of Rochester will enhance the accuracy of computer models used in simulations of laser-driven implosions. The research, published in the journal Nature Physics, addresses one of the challenges in scientists’ longstanding quest to achieve fusion. In laser-driven inertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments, such as the experiments conducted at… Read more

  • Helping machines perceive some laws of physics

    December 4, 2019 by

    Model registers “surprise” when objects in a scene do something unexpected, which could be used to build smarter AI. Rob Matheson | MIT News OfficeDecember 2, 2019 Humans have an early understanding of the laws of physical reality. Infants, for instance, hold expectations for how objects should move and interact with each other, and will… Read more
