If everyone used electricity at a constant rate, generating power would be simple. But spikes in use lead to under-utilized power and ultimately increased costs. Scientists used PSC’s Bridges and former Greenfield systems to understand the economic and engineering challenges of “behind the meter” battery storage.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has reached a new level, with an AI poker program beating four of the top specialists in heads-up, no-limit Texas holdem poker. Libratus, powered by PSCs Bridges supercomputer, is a first step in AIs that can handle imperfect information, offering lessons in important problems such as security, negotiation and even medicine.

A common way for proteins to hold themselves together is with disulfide bridges. But scientists don’t completely understand why some proteins need them to “hook up” their structure. Researchers used the DESRES Anton system hosted at PSC to discover the critical role disulfides play in holding together MCoTI-II, a natural pesticide that would fall apart without disulfide bridges.
