NSSC Affiliate, Austin Wright wins 2017 DOE DNN R&D Network Science and Nuclear Nonproliferation Challenge

Posted by:

Congratulations to NSSC Affiliate, Austin Wright for winning this year’s Network Science and Nuclear Nonproliferation Challenge Prize. The challenge asked participants to write a paper on  applications of network science to nuclear nonproliferation. Austin’s winning entry described a set of methods to infer facility operations by computationally inducing stochastic state space models and then applying deep recurrent neural networks to the results.
The challenge is sponsored by Dept. of Energy Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research & Development office.

POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLARSHIP IN MULTI-SOURCE DATA ANALYTICS

The Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley welcomes applications for a postdoctoral scholar to support a project on multi-source data analytics for nuclear nonproliferation applications. In the absence of direct detection of highly specific nuclear materials, indirect evidence must be used to understand the activities at both declared and undeclared nuclear facilities. Pattern-of-life using distributed intelligence provides important information to inform such assessments. The goal of this work, in collaboration with ...
