The Department of Energy has selected Sandia National Laboratories, Georgia Institute of Technology and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to develop artificial intelligence tools for potential use in DOE missions.

Scientists from the two DOE-backed labs and the public research university will receive $5.5M in total funds to collaborate through the Center for ARtificial Intelligence-focused ARchitectures and Algorithms, PNNL said Wednesday.

The department established ARIAA around the “co-design” concept, which calls for a balance between software and hardware functions as researchers look to integrate algorithms and architectures to address a problem.

Collaborators aim to determine the potential applications of AI and machine learning tools in the cybersecurity, power grid, computatuonal chemistry and graph analytics areas.

“The creation of ARIAA is part of the strategy for solving some of the most challenging problems by employing novel artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques,” said Roberto Gioisa, a senior research scientist at PNNL.
