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).
