Alison Snyder of Axios reports on a new development in fusion energy.
- DeepMind, a London-based computer programming company, has created an algorithm to control the plasma that fuels nuclear fusion reactors.
- The algorithm can control and shape magnetic coils in the reactor to create and maintain different shapes of plasma, allowing scientists to more efficiently harness energy from fusion.
- Fusion has long been marketed as an infinite source of clean energy, and this breakthrough could be key to scaling up fusion deployment.
- The private sector is creating the innovations that we need to reduce carbon emissions.
