VISPA hosts machine learning workshop

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

There are 20 physicists coming from across Canada, USA, and Japan to participate. The workshop will begin with tutorials given by an expert in applying these techniques for particle physics experiments, Kazuhiro Teraro from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

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