Machine Learning Reduces Hazards in Nuclear Power Plants

The application of machine learning with simulation data will provide additional possibilities for field engineers to more accurately assess the hazards for their specific plant. Field conditions are typically not the same as data set conditions. Machine learning models developed in this research will be able to rapidly translate what the appropriate hazard event conditions are for the given field conditions.
