Particle physics and machine learning

As much as it may sound like an improbable squaring of the circle, machine learning and particle physics have more in common than you can think of. This subject is taught at the beginning of the university degree. 

In the 18th edition of the URJC Summer Courses we are fortunate to have an eminence from the University of Glasgow, an expert in experimental particle physics. In addition, we also have a speaker who comes directly from Massachusetts.

Paul Soler Jeremy - Artificial intelligence in the discovery of the Higgs boson

This will be the speech in charge of opening the Summer Courses of the University Rey Juan Carlos (with permission of the opening of Regino Criado) on June 26.
Paul Soler will present multidimensional techniques such as probability density estimators, likelihood functions, extended decision trees and artificial neural networks. These techniques, which are used routinely, are used in the field of particle physics and thanks to them have been discovered elements as elusive as the Higgs boson. The best of all this is that these techniques can also be applied in cybersecurity.

Paul Soler is a Particle Experimental Physics Professor at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow.
In addition, he made a large number of investigations, including among others, those that are related to neutrino physics or experiments carried out in the Large Hadron Collider (CHC) of CERN in Geneva, which used data to measure the differences in the decay of mesons B To its antiparticle partners.

  • The teacher also teaches the following courses:
  • P403H Atomic Systems
  • SUPA Graduate Course on Flavour Physics
  • Physics 4 small group supervision sessions

Una-May O'Rilley - Speaker of MIT

On June 27, the URJC Summer Courses will feature a luxury speaker, a figure of scalable automated learning. We speak nothing less than Una-May O'Rilley, lead researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
With a long journey in the world of artificial intelligence and a pile of recognitions behind her, the director of AnyScale Learning For All (ALFA) arrives at the CIGTR lectures to offer attendees a master class of Machine Learning.

While Summer Courses are focused on how artificial intelligence and machine learning affect cybersecurity, much knowledge can be drawn from its application in other fields. So, it is very interesting to have two totems from fields that are apparently external to cybersecurity so that they offer us their vision and knowledge in this area.
