  1. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  2. SHAPE-BASED GENERALIZATION BOUNDS FOR DEEP LEARNING

    SBC: GEOMETRIC DATA ANALYTICS            Topic: NGA20A001

    We propose to develop a theoretical understanding of the relationship between intrinsic geometric structure in both training and latent data and characteristics of functions learned from that data for deep neural network (DNN) architectures. Along the way we propose to also understand the structure of the neural networks that are best trained on a given data set. Both of these theories will lead t ...

  3. The Energy and Cost-efficient E-waste Recovery Project for Rare-earths and Precious Metals

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    Idaho National Laboratory (INL), under funding from the Critical Materials Institute(CMI), has developed a US patented technology to reclaim valuable metals from waste electronic equipment. The Electrochemical Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (E-RECOV) method uses an electrochemical cell to efficiently recover the bulk of metals from discarded electronics, leading to more complete recycl ...

  4. Quench Detection Method for Large Superconducting Magnets using Robust MEMS Acoustic Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials have excellent mechanical and electrical properties that are attractive for various applications such as power cables and high field, high current superconducting magnets, particularly playing a key role in the commercialization of fusion energy machines. However, HTS materials have very slow normal zone propagation velocities (NZPV) (2-3 orders of ...

  5. Novel Thermal Barrier Coatings for Gasoline Spark Ignition Engines

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Currently spark ignition (SI) engines dominate the light vehicle market, with over 80 million light vehicle engines made worldwide. These SI engines experience exceptionally poor efficiency at low to medium loads and speeds, making it difficult to meet new fuel efficiency standards expected to be imposed in many countries. Low wall temperatures at the end of the combustion process leads to emissio ...

  6. Low-temperature Chemical Looping Reforming Catalystsfor Small-footprint GTL

    SBC: Catalytic and Redox Solutions, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Over 468 billion cubic feet of natural gas was flared in the United State in 2018. This emitted nearly 25 million tons of CO2 while wasting an important domestic energy resource. This “stranded” natural gas, co-produced by shale oil wells, was flared because it is not cost-effective to transport due to low energy density. Although it would be highly desirable to convert this currently flared n ...

  7. Development of Wakefield Accelerating Structures at Ultra-high Frequencies

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The development of a multi-TeV e+e- linear collider is a key priority set by the P5 panel, which established the long-term strategy of the U.S. HEP program. A Two-Beam Acceleration (TBA) is one of the most promising approaches for this facility due to its potential for achieving high efficiency and the ability to accelerate particles with positive and negative charges. However, there are still cha ...

  8. An Advanced Simulation based 3D Framework and Toolkit for Fire Protection and Fire PRA

    SBC: CENTROID PIC INC            Topic: 37i

    At 10.8% Compound annual growth rate(CAGR), Fire Protection Systems Market Size is expected to reach 9.34 Bn USD by 2025. This however reflects only the systems but does not include the services, consultancy and other operator expenses incurred by the industry sectors impacted. Modeling and implementing fire safety for nuclear power plants is an expensive and complex activity. It is difficult to c ...

  9. Co-Development of Oscillating Water Column (OWC) and Offshore Power Station

    SBC: ROI Engineering LLC            Topic: 13c

    In response to the Water Power Technologies Office “Co-Development of Marine Energy Technologies at Smaller Scales.” We propose a co-development of an “Oscillating Water Column” and the “Offshore Power Station”. This proposal is to design a small scale Oscillating Water Column to provide the “offshore energy” as described as one of the activities needed in the “blue economy”. W ...

  10. Preventing Biofouling of Oceanographic Sensors Using UV Illumination Powered by a Compact Wave Energy Converter

    SBC: 3newable LLC            Topic: 13c

    Electrical power is scarce at most offshore locations, so oceanographers design buoy systems to consume very little power in order to reduce the frequency of ship voyages to replace batteries. These expensive voyages can cost several tens of thousands of dollars per day. Solar and wind power can recharge batteries, but harvested power is limited and each source has shortcomings. Wave energy operat ...
