We present a machine learning approach for real-time detector monitoring. The corresponding core algorithm is powered by recent large-scale implementations of kernel methods, nonparametric learning algorithms that can approximate any continuous function given enough data. The model evaluates the compatibility between incoming batches of experimental data and a reference data sample, by implementing a hypothesis testing procedure based on the likelihood ratio. The resulting model is fast, efficient and agnostic about the type of potential anomaly in the data. We show the performance of the model on multivariate data from muon chamber monitoring.
