The compelling aspects and technologies of Artificial Intelligence that drew Noelle Brown to receive a masters in machine learning, are the same pieces of information that now push her to place ethical checkpoints in place for those creating it.
Brown, a first-year PhD student, is studying societal computing, also... Read more
The first time Randall Kelley, PhD, learned about Artificial Intelligence (AI) was as a Post-Doctorate Fellow at Harvard University in 2009. Kelley used machine learning science in a project—and never looked back.
Thirteen years later, ARCS Alumnus Randall Kelley is the Director of Machine Learning at Manifold, an... Read more
ARCS National highlights the successes of the organization in “Opening Doors to Scientific Achievements,” its Annual Report of the 2020-2021 academic year. In a year overshadowed by a global pandemic, our mission to empower innovation and scientific discoveries was bolstered by these ARCS milestones:
We will be faced with the Coronavirus and its variants for some time to come. Over the past two years, we all have learned to adjust our daily lives by working either part-time or full-time from home, limiting time with friends and family, and learning to tackle important new scientific...

The high-performance computing (HPC) resources within the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBL) are an invaluable tool used to address global warming, develop renewable energy sources, and understand astrophysical phenomena like a supernova.
However, those scientific advancements wouldn’t take place without the skills and contributions of ARCS Alumna Dr.... Read more
Meteorites, and what they can tell us about the formation and early evolution of the solar system are the focus of Dr. Gregory Brennecka's research at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. As a staff scientist, he studies their isotopic signatures using mass spectrometry.
“Meteorites are by far the most influential rocks on Earth. No... Read more
One of NASA’s goals is to explore galaxies light years away, plus the planets and moons within our solar system. It’s up to ARCS 2016 Hall of Fame Honoree Dr. Stephen Lichten and hundreds of scientists to keep track of those missions and collect data.
