Episode #144: Machine Learning at the Large Hadron Collider

Published Tues, Dec 26, 2017, recorded Thurs, Dec 14, 2017.


We all know Python is becoming increasingly important in both science and machine learning. This week we journey to the very forefront of Physics.

You will meet Michela Paganini, Michael Kagan, and Matthew Feickert. They all work at the Large Hadron Collider and are using Python and machine learning to help make the next major discovery in Physics.
