Recent advances in deep neural networks (DNNs) have led to significant improvements in the accuracy of particle identification, among other areas. We continue to explore cutting-edge techniques such as graph neural networks, which generalize the representation of our data to exploit as much information as possible.
We manage one of the world’s most preeminent research networks. From historic experiments in nuclear energy, developmental biology, and particle physics to today’s challenges of renewable power, dark matter, and microbial ecology, these institutions have long been at the vanguard of discovery.
