Data Science in High Energy Physics
Friday March 31, 2017
|Series:||Physics and Astronomy Colloquium|
|Abstract:||I will give an overview of Data Science and its intersection with High Energy Physics. We are standing at a pivotal point in the history of high energy physics, producing at the Large Hadron Collider the highest energy collisions ever and the highest volume, velocity and variability datasets ever as we approach fast the Exascale era. The physics probe capacity and knowledge contained in these datasets is unprecedented as we push in the beyond Higgs era of particle physics. Any discovery beyond the Higgs will likely involve new data methods algorithms and workflow applications. In as little as five years from now, given the massive data we are collecting and plan to collect, it will be imperative to have AI solutions that serve the scientific exploration in this domain but also in other sciences.|
|Location:||Room 125, Dane Smith Hall|
Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 3:45 pm, in the lobby of Dane Smith Hall.
