Developing Efficient Solutions for the Nation’s Nuclear Waste using AI and Machine Learning
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of live tours.
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more.
Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.
All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.
The tour description and registration link is below:
Over 75 years after the “Nuclear Age” of the 1940s, researchers at PNNL continue to enable the future of nuclear energy and the safe management of radioactive waste from energy generation and past weapons production. On this tour, learn how PNNL is advancing glass waste forms and robotic waste tank inspection systems to support Hanford Site cleanup operations and integrated waste management for the nuclear power industry.
Please register here in advance to receive the Zoom link and information.
