California-based startup Atomic Canyon has announced a new project with the US Department of Energy's (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), to build a safe, efficient open-source AI (artificial intelligence) model for the nuclear sector. Atomic Canyon will use ORNL’s Frontier supercomputer – the world's fastest supercomputer – to train the company's AI model to understand complex nuclear terminology. Frontier was the first to achieve "exascale" computing performance (a quintillion calculations per second).

Collaboration between the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), Dell Technologies, Intel and the University of Cambridge is underway to advance the development of the UK’s prototype fusion power plant. Scientists and engineers plan to access supercomputers and AI (artificial intelligence) to inform and accelerate engineering designs of the UKAEA’s STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production) facility. UKAEA says the engineering designs of STEP, sited in Nottinghamshire, “will be developed in a highly immersive and connected virtual environment, known as the ‘Industrial Metaverse’”.

Finland’s Posiva Oy has launched a project for modelling the groundwater chemistry in the bedrock of the site for the final disposal of used nuclear fuel far into the future using one of the most efficient computers in the world. Posiva, which is responsible for the final disposal of used nuclear fuel, is jointly owned by Finnish nuclear utilities Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima Oyj. “This is probably the most demanding modelling of groundwater chemistry to date, anywhere in the world. The goal of the project is to verify the balancing of long-term safety with economic sustainability. This will open the way to industrial final disposal far into the future,” Posiva noted.
