Science Search, a web-based search engine for scientific data is currently being developed by a team of researchers in Berkeley Lab's CRD and NERSC. The team is also developing innovative machine learning tools to pull contextual information from scientific datasets and automatically generate metadata tags for each file. As a proof-of-concept, the team is working with staff at the Molecular Foundry, to demonstrate the concepts of Science Search on the images captured by the facility's instruments.
CRD Senior Scientist and Group Leader Bert de Jong was recently named a founding editor-in-chief for Electronic Structure, a new Institute of Physics scholarly journal.
Applied mathematician Mike MacNeil joined the Computational Research Division’s Analytics and Visualization group at Berkeley Lab as a postdoctoral researcher in August 2017, where he is working to develop new algorithms that improve scientists’ ability to shift through the image data sets they glean from experiments run at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source.
