Special RPM | Gregor Kasieczka (Hamburg U) “Faster, Deeper, Stronger: Machines Learn Particle Physics
January 22, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Many experimental results from both particle and astrophysics hint that the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics cannot be a complete theory of Nature. However, in its first years of operation, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN was very successful in excluding large regions of parameter space for potential models beyond the SM. We present how deep learning can be used to search for deviations from the SM in a model independent way. Beyond searching for new physics, we explore ways to increase the robustness and understanding of network decisions and show how generative models can speed up simulations.
