Dr. Sam Ade Jacobs is a computer scientist and a project lead in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University. Dr. Jacobs’ broad research experiences and interests include parallel computing, large-scale graph (data) analytics, scalable machine learning, and robotics.
Dr. Jacobs’ current work focuses on developing new algorithms for large scale deep learning with applications in drug design, high energy physics, cosmology and global nuclear non-proliferation analysis. Dr. Jacobs’ work represents significant advances to the broader field of computational sciences as well as to (big) data science by providing and maintaining unique data analytics capabilities. His approaches and tools are designed to operate on massive supercomputers at LLNL (and other DOE labs) and are tested on those machines.
