#4 Experimental AI — with Maurizio Pierini and Michael Doser
Listen now
Particle physics is at a moment of truth. The discovery in 2012 of the Higgs boson promises to reveal a rich new structure for the vacuum and rewrite the history of the early universe, but a long list of fundamental questions remains, and physicists are faced with an awesome data flow from the Large Hadron Collider. In Episode 4, CERN’s Maurizio Pierini and Michael Doser explore using “unsupervised learning” to reveal nature’s mysteries. I’m really super excited about the next LHC run, says Pierini, because this is when we’re going to try these things for real.  To find out more, join hosts Mark Rayner and Abha Eli Phoboo as they speak with Anima and John on the subject of Creative AI. Maurizio Pierini is an innovative young experimental physicist implementing AI techniques at the Large Hadron Collider. Michael Doser is a seasoned experimental physicist at CERN’s antimatter factory.
