Workshop on Big Data and Deep Learning Techniques with speakers from CERN

Analysis of large datasets are crucial in Particle Physics, just like in Nuclear Physics, Cosmology and other Physical Sciences, for interpreting results of ongoing (LHC) and future experiments.

Over the last few years, rapid progress in AI have enabled our smartphones, social networks, and search engines to understand our voice, recognize our faces, and identifiy objects in our photos with very good accuracy. These dramatic improvements are due in large part to the emergence of a new class of machine learning methods known as Deep Learning.
