The second set of projects focuses on basic ML and AI research for “decision support” in managing complex processes similar to those found in self-driving cars, where ML and AI can make or aid in making decisions in real time. 

The projects, which are led by a mix of universities and DOE national laboratories, were chosen by competitive peer review under two separate DOE Funding Opportunity Announcements namely the ‘Scientific Machine Learning for Modeling and Simulations‘ and the ‘Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support for Complex Systems‘.

The announcements were made by the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) within DOE’s Office of Science.

The five modeling and simulation projects will be funded at a total of $3 million over …
