Machine learning ushers in a new paradigm for particle searches at the LHC

Searching for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) is a major part of the research programme at the LHC experiments. Nearly all of these searches pick a signal model that addresses one or more of the experimental (e.g., dark matter) or…

Systematic uncertainties: the new target of Machine Learning for HEP

The accurate measurement of physical constants is one of the main goals of research in subnuclear physics. On one side, it improves our ability to represent physical reality through our theoretical models, which opens the way to more stringent tests…

Artificial neural networks shed light on rare SM processes.

In a new paper released last month, the ATLAS Collaboration reported the observation of a single top quark produced in association with a Z boson (tZq) using the full Run-2 dataset, thereby confirming earlier results by ATLAS and CMS using smaller…

Machine learning for new Detector Technologies

I have spent a considerable amount of my time as Master student in Physics in the late 70’s performing a fairly prosaic function that nevertheless required the presence of humans (physics professors, trained technicians and of course students):…

Can AI help us to find tracks?

Data science (DS) and machine learning (ML) are amongst the fastest growing sectors in science and technology, not at least due to their strong rooting in industrial and commercial applications. Global players such as Google, Facebook and Amazon…
