Sandbox science. As soon as Bechtel leaves the scientists go cowboy and study anything that just springs to their mind. This really boils my blood. What do earthquakes have to do with anything at LANL or nuclear weapons? Machine learning at a NNSA lab is crazy just crazy.

LANL has a many-decades long history of excellent research in earthquake monitoring (a cousin to nuclear test monitoring), and an excellent reputation in planetary and geosciences of all kinds. LANL is and has always been a multidisciplinary laboratory. If Bechtel tried to restrain or deny that, it never understood LANL, and good riddance. If your blood boils, you die - just sayin'

This is actually in the NNSA mission at least coincidentally. Earthquakes help tell us about other things.

LANL Researchers should apply machine learning to mine data, human behavior, profits, and politics, to predict the next avoidable LANL accident. No really, they should.

No actual technical knowledge, huh?

Never heard of how to improve worker safety, health, and environmental management, using machine
learning techniques? Not big on being situationally aware, huh?

Situational awareness is big for hunters, soldiers in combat, people on busy urban streets. For scientists in the lab, not so much. Technical and scientific awareness, yeah. But you don't know anything about that. Like I said, no actual technical knowledge.

If you believe situational awareness only applies to hunters and soldiers and not to scientists in the lab, you are a potential danger to yourself and your lab coworkers. You may have a scientific or technical background, maybe, but probably not at LANL or LLNL, or you are a new hire.

Exactly my point and why it is a waste of time to have something like machine leaning at an NNSA lab. We do not do situation awareness at the labs and as you noted there is no technical knowledge either.

Machine learning applied to past and future LANL accidents has a negative PR value, predicting earthquakes has a positive PR value.

That was referring to you, not to the labs.
