Multiple engineering problems have been solved using AI/ML in the NSE division at Argonne in collaboration with diverse industry partners (in particular electric utilities and advanced reactor designers).

The table below showcases a few of the application projects that have been developed at Argonne. Summary descriptions of these representative projects can be reached through the associated hyperlinks. These examples convey the real possibilities for addressing issues of maintenance, operation, and design for both existing commercial reactors and advanced reactors in ways not possible with traditional methods.
