Description

Building on the notion of a particle physics detector as a camera we investigate the potential of deep learning architectures to identify highly boosted W bosons. We develop techniques for visualizing features learned deep networks and what additional information is used to improve performance. Our study of physically-motivated features and learning algorithms is general and can be used to significantly increase discovery sensitivity and gain a deeper understanding of the physics within jets.
