W25 Application of Artificial Intelligence and Analytics to Nuclear Power Plant Activities

Advances in computing technologies, and access to both historical datasets and real-time data collection, have led to the expanded use of artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics in a diverse range of industries.  This session will provide an overview of current AI-related activities in the nuclear industry as well as perspectives on what the future could look like for using these technologies to develop insights about the behavior of systems and to further inform decisionmakers. Specific topics will include using analytics for predictive maintenance, improving plant performance, and exploring how NRC could also make use of these technologies.
