Intelligent Systems and Facilities Group

intelligent systems

Addressing system software challenges for scientific instruments and facilities.

This group collaborates with computer, computational, instrument and domain science experts across CSMD, ORNL, other national laboratories, and universities to foster the scientific leadership in smart systems, instruments, and facilities necessary to further both the ORNL and DOE missions.​ The group’s research and development connects scientific instruments and facilities with edge and leadership computing capabilities and provides operational intelligence with machine-in-the-loop feedback. It enables scientific breakthroughs with autonomous experiments, “self-driving” laboratories, smart manufacturing, and AI-driven design, discovery, and evaluation.
