Federal scientists find a way to reduce the costs of running nuclear power plants

If the nation is to have a so-called green future, many scientists and engineers believe more nuclear power generation will be part of the equation. Nukes are expensive to operate. But researchers at the Argonne National Laboratory think they’ve found a way to use artificial intelligence to drive down costs. For more, Federal Drive host Tom Temin spoke with Roberto Ponciroli, Argonne’s principal nuclear engineer.
