The use of up-to-date machine learning methods, including deep neural networks, running directly on raw data has significant potential in High Energy Physics for revealing patterns in detector signals and as a result improving reconstruction and the sensitivity of the final physics analyses. In this work, we describe a machine-learning analysis pipeline developed and operating at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), processing data from the Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment. We apply convolutional neural networks to raw data from Daya Bay in an unsupervised mode where no input physics knowledge or training labels are used.
