US-based Blue Wave AI Labs has deployed machine learning (ML) tools at power utility Constellation’s Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station and Limerick Generating Station. The project was part of a $6m initiative supported by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to lower NPP operating costs using artificial intelligence (AI) and ML technologies. Argonne National Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory contributed to the project. The effort also leveraged 158,000 core hours across the Nuclear Science User Facilities high-performance computing systems.
