Lauren Tompkins (Stanford U.) "The World’s most complicated game of Bingo: Pattern Recognition at the Energy-Intensity Frontier"

February 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In 2012 the ATLAS and CMS experiments discovered the Higgs Boson, firmly establishing the Standard Model as the dominant paradigm for subatomic particle interactions.  Many expected the Higgs discovery to be one of several discoveries at the energy frontier, yet five years later it remains the single addition to the subatomic particle pantheon.  Meanwhile, the LHC has begun to push the boundaries of the hadron collision intensity frontier, yielding large datasets for further understanding the Standard Model as well as continuing the increasingly difficult search for new physics.  I will discuss a path through the intensity frontier, focusing on a hardware based, real-time pattern recognition engine which will enable the ATLAS experiment to fully exploit the delivered data by playing the world’s most complicated game of bingo.
