Application Area Technical Lead: William Hart, Sandia National Laboratories
This activity covers an emerging area in which predictive capability is partially based on modern data analysis and machine learning techniques rather than strictly on approximate solutions to equations that state fundamental physical principles or reduced semi-empirical models.
This activity encompasses a broad range of research areas and techniques, some of which are only recently coming into maturity in the context of high-end simulation. As such, they represent greater risk but also significant potential for new discovery. The specific projects involved are listed below.
