Deep learning in nuclear industry: A survey
Big Data Mining and Analytics
As a high-tech strategic emerging comprehensive industry, the nuclear industry is committed to the research, production, and processing of nuclear fuel, as well as the development and utilization of nuclear energy. Nowadays, the nuclear industry has made remarkable progress in the application fields of nuclear weapons, nuclear power, nuclear medical treatment, radiation processing, and so on. With the development of artificial intelligence and the proposal of "Industry 4.0", more and more
... cial intelligence technologies are introduced into the nuclear industry chain to improve production efficiency, reduce operation cost, improve operation safety, and realize risk avoidance. Meanwhile, deep learning, as an important technology of artificial intelligence, has made amazing progress in theoretical and applied research in the nuclear industry, which vigorously promotes the development of informatization, digitization, and intelligence of the nuclear industry. In this paper, we first simply comb and analyze the intelligent demand scenarios in the whole industrial chain of the nuclear industry. Then, we discuss the data types involved in the nuclear industry chain. After that, we investigate the research status of deep learning in the application fields corresponding to different data types in the nuclear industry. Finally, we discuss the limitation and unique challenges of deep learning in the nuclear industry and the future direction of the intelligent nuclear industry.
