World : Artificial intelligence may help develop clean, limitless fusion energy

Artificial intelligence (AI) may help develop safe, clean and virtually limitless fusion energy for generating electricity, scientists say.

A team, including researchers from Princeton University and Harvard University, are applying deep learning to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks or apparatus that house the reactions.

Deep learning is a powerful new version of the machine learning form of AI, according to the findings published in the journal Nature magazine.

“This research opens a promising new chapter in the effort to bring unlimited energy to Earth,” Steven Cowley, director of US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).
