Deep Learning from Molten Salts

Interesting results from local university. 

Deep Learning Method Worth Its Salt

UC (University of Cincinnati) News

Michael Miller, July 22, 2022

A multi-institutional team of researchers led by the University of Cincinnati's Yu Shi has developed a novel technique for modeling the thermodynamic properties of molten salts via deep learning artificial intelligence. Shi said the researchers trained a neural network on data produced by quantum simulations, which they used to estimate the free energy of molten sodium chloride. The research, according to Shi, offers a reliable way of studying the conversion of dissolved gas to vapor in molten salts, helping to understand how impurities and solutes affect corrosion. He added that the method also could help scientists analyze the emission of potentially toxic gas into the atmosphere, which will be useful for fourth-generation molten salt nuclear reactors.  ...
