Using AI to develop low-carbon fusion technologies

Fusion energy has the potential to be a revolutionary energy source that will help us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and tackle climate change. The STFC Hartree Centre and the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) are using supercomputing and Artificial Intelligence to design technologies to make fusion energy a commercial reality.

The collaboration is now progressing into an exciting second phase of a five-year joint project designed to help scientists develop viable fusion energy technologies virtually instead of using expensive, real world prototyping.
