Baseline Control Systems in the Intelligent Building Agents Laboratory

September 22, 2021
Amanda Pertzborn, Daniel Veronica
The goal of the Embedded Intelligence in Buildings program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is to develop and deploy advances in measurement science that will improve building operations to achieve lower operating costs

Reservoir computing leveraging the transient non-linear dynamics of spin-torque nano-oscillators

August 6, 2021
Mathieu Riou, Jacob Torrejon, Flavio Abreu Araujo, Sumito Tsunegi, Guru Khalsa, Damien Querlioz, Paolo Bortolotti, Nathan Leroux, Danijela Markovic, Vincent Cros, K. Yakushiji, Akio Fukushima, Hitoshi Kubota, Shinji Yuasa, Mark D. Stiles, Julie Grollier
Present artificial intelligence algorithms require extensive computations to emulate the behavior of large neural networks, operating current computers near their limits, which leads to high energy costs. A possible solution to this problem is the

NVLAP Federal Warfare System(s)

July 21, 2021
Bradley Moore, John Matyjas, Raymond Tierney, Jesse Angle, Jeannine Abiva, Jeff Hanes, David Dobosh, John Avera
NIST Handbook 150-872 presents the technical requirements and guidance for the accreditation of laboratories under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) Federal Warfare System(s) (FWS) program. It is intended for information and

Challenges of Accuracy in Germline Clinical Sequencing Data

July 20, 2021
Justin Zook, Ryan Poplin, Mark DePristo
Physicians are increasingly using clinical sequencing tests to establish diagnoses of patients who might have genetic disorders, which means that accuracy of sequencing and interpretation are important elements in ensuring the benefits of genetic testing

NIST 2021 Speaker Recognition Evaluation Plan

July 12, 2021
Omid Sadjadi, Craig Greenberg, Elliot Singer, Lisa Mason, Douglas Reynolds
The 2021 Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE21) is the next in an ongoing series of speaker recognition evaluations conducted by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) since 1996. The objectives of the evaluation series are (1) to

User Guide for NIST Media Forensic Challenge (MFC) Datasets

July 6, 2021
Haiying Guan, Andrew Delgado, Yooyoung Lee, Amy Yates, Daniel Zhou, Timothee N. Kheyrkhah, Jonathan G. Fiscus
NIST released a set of Media Forensic Challenge (MFC) datasets developed in DARPA MediFor (Media Forensics) project to the public in the past 5 years. More than 300 individuals, 150 organizations, from 26 countries and regions worldwide use our datasets

DeepNetQoE: Self-adaptive QoE Optimization Framework of Deep Networks

June 24, 2021
Hamid Gharavi
Future advances in deep learning and its impact on the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in all fields depends heavily on data size and computational power. Sacrificing massive computing resources in exchange for better precision rates of the

Ray-based framework for state identification in quantum dot devices

June 17, 2021
Justyna Zwolak, Thomas McJunkin, Sandesh Kalantre, Samuel Neyens, Evan MacQuarrie, Mark A. Eriksson, Jacob Taylor
Quantum dots (QDs) defined with electrostatic gates are one of the leading candidates for scaling up the number of qubits in quantum computing implementations. However, with increasing qubit number, the complexity of the control parameter space also grows

Exact Tile-Based Segmentation Inference for Images Larger than GPU Memory

June 3, 2021
Michael P. Majurski, Peter Bajcsy
We address the problem of performing exact (tiling-error free) out-of-core semantic segmentation inference of arbitrarily large images using fully convolutional neural networks (FCN). FCN models have the property that once a model is trained, it can be

Deep reinforcement learning assisted energy harvesting wireless networks

May 24, 2021
Junliang Ye, Hamid Gharavi
Heterogeneous ultra-dense networking (HUDN) with energy harvesting technology is a promising approach to deal with the ever-growing traffic that can severely impact the power consumption of small-cell networks. Unfortunately, the amount of harvested energy

Optoelectronic Intelligence

May 7, 2021
Jeff Shainline
To design and construct hardware for general intelligence, we must consider principles of both neuroscience and very-large-scale integration. For large neural systems capable of general intelligence, the attributes of photonics for communication and

Generative Adversarial Network Performance in Low-Dimensional Settings

April 20, 2021
Felix M. Jimenez, Amanda Koepke, Mary Gregg, Michael R. Frey
A generative adversarial network (GAN) is an artificial neural network with a distinctive training architecture, designed to create examples that faithfully reproduce a target distribution. GANs have recently had particular success in applications

Neural Networks for Classifying Probability Distributions

April 19, 2021
Siham Khoussi, N. Alan Heckert, Abdella Battou, Saddek Bensalem
Probability distribution fitting of an unknown stochastic process is an important preliminary step for any further analysis in science or engineering. However, it requires some background in statistics and prior considerations of the process or phenomenon
