VISPA hosted machine learning workshop

This workshop, on UVic campus from April 15-17, 2019, included tutorials and working sessions using GPU servers to allow participants to gain experience in machine learning techniques. The focus was on developing techniques to analyze simulated photosensor data from the proposed intermediate and Hyper-Kamiokande water Cherekov detectors.

There were 20 physicists from across Canada, USA, and Japan who participated. The workshop began with tutorials given by an expert in applying these techniques for particle physics experiments, Kazuhiro Teraro from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

The workshop was made possible with support from the University of Victoria Office of the Vice-President Research and Amazon Web Services.
