digiLab Newsletter: Issue 10

Welcome to the latest newsletter. Last week, we had a great time exhibiting at Utilities Week Live, with exciting conversations about applying Machine Learning in order to improve sustainability and reduce costs across gas, electricity, and water networks. This week, our Fusion Solution Engineer, Ross Allen, attended ITER's first Private Sector Fusion Workshop. And for those who enjoyed Cyd's article about Predicting Magnetic Fusion Performance, we've released his code in a demo notebook, for twinLab users to explore.

Welcome to the latest newsletter. Our Fusion Solution Engineer, Cyd, hosted a Fusion & AI webinar as part of the Fusion Energy Week from US Fusion Energy. He also produced a new video, "Predicting Performance for Magnetic Fusion", by modelling a tokamak in twinLab. We're also excited to announce that we're hiring for multiple roles across Fusion and Nuclear Fission Sales: Solution Engineering, MLOps, and Software Engineering.

Welcome to the latest newsletter. Lots of fusion this week! We've got another event lined up, this time with our CEO, Professor Tim Dodwell, in addition to Cyd's upcoming webinar series; and we've recapped our workshop with the Plasma Science and Fusion Center at MIT. We've also created a new home for twinLab tutorials, demonstrating a range of its powerful but easy-to-use capabilities.

Welcome to the latest newsletter. A shorter, interim one this fortnight - blame the Easter holidays! Our Technical Content Lead, Ana, has produced an in-depth video and accompanying tutorial exploring the Predict capability in twinLab. We've also written up a review of our workshop at the Henry Royce Institute. Get in touch if your organisation would like a similar workshop on the use of Probabilistic ML for engineering workflows.

digiLab Co-Host ML Workshop at the Henry Royce Institute

digiLab recently co-hosted an ML workshop at the prestigious Royce Discovery Centre, bringing together industry and academia to explore the intersection of machine learning (ML) with the domains of forging, advanced materials, and manufacturing. The event drew representatives from key institutions including the Henry Royce Institute, Rolls Royce, the University of Strathclyde, the University of Manchester, WH Tildesley Ltd, and the University of Sheffield.

We've been travelling the globe for the last two weeks, attending the Fusion Industry Association annual policy conference in D.C., and delivering twinLab workshops for MIT, for The Henry Royce Institute / Rolls-Royce, and, nearer to home, for Exeter College. Cyd Cowley, fusion solutions engineer at digiLab, has released Part 1 of his "Machine Learning for Fusion" series. Meanwhile, Ana has published the final part of her Gaussian Processes series, finishing up with a look at "autoML" in twinLab. Finally, we're excited to announce our three summer interns.

Announcing our 2024 Summer Interns

We are delighted to introduce the students who will be taking part in digiLab’s 2024 Summer Internship Programme. Joe Rayson is a 2nd year Business and Economics student at the University of Exeter and will work in Business Development at digiLab. Natalia Wojcik is studying for a BSc in Economics at the University of Exeter. Lucas Pigott comes to digiLab fresh from a study abroad year at the University of North Carolina.

This fortnight, our Technical Content Lead, Ana, has finished the second video in her "Demystifying Gaussian Processes" series. She'll explore how we can choose the right kernel for our Gaussian Process. The twinLab team has also implemented Initial Design Spaces, to help users build models or experiment designs from scratch. Finally, we've joined the U.S. DIII-D National Fusion Facility!

digiLab Joins U.S. DIII-D National Fusion Facility

digiLab has begun efforts to advance fusion in the US, by joining the DIII-D National Fusion Facility, a U.S Department of Energy user facility. As a member of this facility that houses a world-class research tokamak, digiLab can now work with data and scientists from the facility to solve some of the hardest challenges in fusion.

The big news this fortnight has been success in the water sector. This validates our goal of enabling organisations in multiple industries to take the next step in their digital transformation journey by deploying ML solutions. We've also augmented twinLab with dimensionality reduction capabilities.

digiLab Announced as a Winner of the OfWat Water Discovery Challenge

We’ve received almost half a million pounds from OfWat to further develop and commercialise senSiteUQ, our sensor placement optimisation solution for water networks. senSiteUQ enables operators to maximise their understanding of the network, while minimising the total number of sensors required. That translates into better decision-making with reduced costs. senSiteUQ will enable the water sector to reduce CSO pollution, respond faster to extreme weather, improve biodiversity, and have improved live monitoring and data analysis.

Announcing the Formation of Our Specialist Fusion Team

digiLab is excited to announce the formation of our specialist Fusion Team, composed of recent hires Dr Ross Allen and Dr Cyd Cowley. They bring extensive domain expertise from across the fusion ecosystem: plasma science, systems engineering and design, advanced control, and advanced materials/manufacturing. They combine this knowledge with strong capabilities in the use of probabilistic Machine Learning to unlock new frontiers in this transformative, rapidly-evolving sector.

Tokamak Energy collaborate with digiLab

digiLab hosted a Machine Learning (ML) workshop at Tokamak Energy, focusing on the application of mission-critical ML to fusion energy development workflows. Attendees discovered how to use digiLab’s ML platform, twinLab, to combine their fusion expertise with the latest in probabilistic modelling and uncertainty quantification (UQ).

The Ethical AI Database

Explainablity and transparency are key ideals-straight from Plato's realm of the forms-that developers must hold themselves to in order to facilitate proper ethical and sociological inspection of AI models. At digiLab, this is our bread and butter. This is why we have been registered onto the Ethical AI Database (EAIDB).

Dr Andy Corbett

Introducing our Summer 2023 Interns

Congratulations and a very warm welcome to the three students who successfully applied to our internship scheme this year, seeing off over 1600 other applicants to the post.
