This week the first Inter-experimental LHC Machine Learning IML workshop took place at CERN. I showed my results on using deep learning for hadronic particle labeling (flavour tagging), a method that offers significant improvements in the labeling of heavy flavour jets for the CMS experiment (which I am member of). Despite deep learning as a topic is all over the media, the big CERN experiments have not used it a lot this far. In fact my application is, to my knowledge, the very first deep-learning application in CMS reconstruction.
The workshop featured several presentations on deep learning using Continue reading “Big LHC Experiments Go Deep”
