I wanted to share a research summary of the use of Machine Learning in LENR I did for ICCF25. Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) in condensed matter nuclear physics has many body complexity and non-linear dynamics. These phenomena could hold the keys to limitless and clean energy, a topic I believe is crucial for the future of humanity. But how do we decode the science behind it?
Recently I turned to Utilizing machine learning techniques for LENR, and the results have been nothing short of illuminating. Machine learning technologies are not just confined to the realm of data science; they are increasingly intersecting with diverse scientific areas. This article unpacks a seminal research paper that examines this cross-disciplinary potential, particularly spotlighting its applications in LENR.
Why use Machine Learning for LENR?
Navigating the complexities of academic research can be daunting. Here, I attempted to simplify key findings from a recent research paper, offering an accessible summary. The paper, a collaborative effort from than many multiple experts in condensed matter nuclear physics and LENR, argues that machine learning algorithms have the potential to revolutionize the way we analyze intricate experimental data concerning LENR. These algorithms are adept at identifying non-obvious patterns, thereby opening new avenues for understanding the underlying physics of these nuclear reactions. Again I presented these findings at ICCF25. The complete presentation with notes can be accessed here: UMLENR Presentation.
Types of Machine Learning and using a GPT-LLM
Generative Pre-Trained Transformer Large Language Models are showing an impressive ability to extend human intelligence and efficiency. It is possible now to use LLMs as a way to interface with many types of machine learning algorithms and datasets. Think it as a natural language communication user interface for the average person. The ability to set tasks from knowledge bases and train LLMs for a specific subject domain, allows us the ability to create domain experts that can be generative with cognitive abilities. This type of technology is still in it’s infancy, but we have shown LLMs can interface with other specifically designed APIs, Databases, and various Software becoming a valuable tool for the general public.
