WFU Physics Colloquium
TITLE: “Machine Learning in Experimental Nuclear Physics”
SPEAKER: Professor Michelle Kuchera
Department of Physics
TIME: Wed. Sep. 13, 2017 at 4:00 PM
PLACE: George P. Williams, Jr. Lecture Hall, (Olin 101)
There will be a reception with refreshments at 3:30 PM in the lounge. All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
The atomic nucleus was discovered by Ernest Rutherford in 1911. Over 100 years later, as the limits of nuclear existence are beginning to be explored, we are still working toward a complete understanding of the structure and properties of all nuclei. Advanced accelerators and detectors are used to study reactions involving rare nuclei. This talk will discuss the computational challenges and methods of “big data” detector systems.
