Los Alamos Claims Quantum Machine Learning Breakthrough: Training with Small Amounts of Data

Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory today announced a quantum machine learning “proof” they say shows that training a quantum neural network requires only a small amount of data, “(upending) previous assumptions stemming from classical computing’s huge appetite for data in machine learning, or artificial intelligence.” The lab said the theorem has direct applications, including […]

DOE Picks Los Alamos Lab for $9.25M Nuclear Energy Research HPC Project

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the selection of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to lead a $9.25 million, five-year collaborative project in nuclear energy research through the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program. SciDAC brings together researchers in science and energy with those in software development, applied mathematics, and computer science […]
