New Research Group on Artificial Intelligence in Particle Physics at HEPHY

A new research group on "Machine Learning for Particle Physics" started at the institute of high-energy physics (HEPHY) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) this October.

Group leader is Dr. Claudius Krause, who joined us from the University of Heidelberg. The new machine learning group will investigate how machine learning can help improve and optimize simulations and analyses of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and at the Belle-II experiment at the Japanese research institute KEK. In addition, also new, previously-thought-to-be impossible analysis strategies can be realized with the use of artificial intelligence. The use of machine learning will contribute to a better understanding of the vast experimental data, leading to a better understanding of the Universe.
