Unsupervised AI software is like a data science Swiss Army knife

Data science struggles with the balance between acquiring larger, higher-dimensional data sets and ensuring that data is still useful. To mitigate this issue, Los Alamos researchers developed a novel software tool that employs unsupervised artificial intelligence to sift through massive data sets and discover latent trends, mechanisms, signatures, and features hidden in the data. This software is equivalent to a Swiss Army knife—a tool that provides a solution for almost any problem, as long as that problem pertains to big data
