DENAS: Deep Neuroevolution at Scale

Brian Van Essen | 21-ERD-026

Executive Summary

We are developing new methods to identify architectures for neural networks at high-performance computing scale and training neural networks to address scientific applications at these larger scales. This research advances the capabilities of neural networks to address many high-priority national security and scientific initiatives such as nuclear stockpile stewardship, inertial confinement fusion, and modeling for drug design, including countermeasures to coronavirus disease 2019.
