The Formation of Our Specialist Fusion Team

We're delighted to welcome 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.

Ross and Cyd will be partnering with both public and private industry players in order to provide frontline support and guidance for mission-critical applications of ML solutions and our ML platform, twinLab.

Understanding Gaussian Processes, Part 1

At digiLab, we believe that Gaussian Processes are the best option for a wide variety of ML applications in complex engineering/infrastructure domains. They enable you to build highly flexible, probabilistic ML models, with embedded uncertainty quantification, and can handle data which is sparse, limited, noisy, or expensive.

But even if you've been exploring machine learning, there's a good chance you haven't come across Gaussian Processes yet. And if you have, you might have found it difficult to grasp the mathematical intuition behind them.

Attending the 2024 FARSCAPE Workshop

This week, we attended the 2024 FARSCAPE workshop at the UKAEA. FARSCAPE (Fusion Applications Research into Scalable Computing Algorithms for Performance at the Exascale) is a multi-million pound collaboration programme between the UKAEA, the Science and Technology Facilities Council, and digiLab. It aims to simulate fusion power plant systems, and thereby reduce the need for an expensive test-based design approach.

At the workshop, we explored ongoing and future projects involving twinLab, from simulating plasma turbulence to providing uncertainty quantification for engineering systems. We also demonstrated our LLM for accessing fusion information.

Probabilistic ML with twinLab

twinLab is already being used to solve next-generation engineering and sustainability challenges at organisations like the UKAEA, Airbus, and Rolls-Royce. Our vision with twinLab is to help more people and organisations to use probabilistic ML.

Just hit "Try twinLab" at the top-right, or reply to this email, and we'll set you up with an API key, the documentation, and some example solutions.

Alternatively, if you've got a particular data challenge, book a free call with one of our solution engineers.

The digiLab Team
We are a 30+ strong team of ML Experts, Software Developers, Solution Engineers, and Product Experts. As a spinout from the University of Exeter, we build on years of cutting-edge academic research. At our core is a commitment to helping engineering and infrastructure companies become data-driven.
