Data Science Institute: Enabling Excellence in Research and Applications

Data science has become an essential discipline paving the path of LLNL’s key program areas, and the Laboratory is home to some of the largest, most unique, and most interesting data and supercomputers in the world. The Data Science Institute (DSI) is the central hub for all data science activity at LLNL working to help lead, build, and strengthen the data science workforce, research, and outreach to advance the state-of-the-art of our nation’s data science capabilities.

LLNL applies data science to a variety of application domains including:

  • Laser and photon sciences
  • Large scale physics simulations
  • Large scale data mining for predictive medicine
  • Functional data analysis for uncertainty quantification
  • Expert finding in social media
  • Knowledge extraction from text
  • Drug and vaccine discovery using HPC simulations and physical experiments
  • Reinforcement learning with real-world simulations
  • Apache Spark machine learning tools
  • Video data summarization and classification
  • Energy efficiency analysis using HPC
  • Dynamic network structure inference
  • Automated video tracking algorithms
  • Deep learning applications
  • Classification and forward modeling of hyper-spectral data
