Currently, the method for identifying particles in the ATLAS experiment relies on Likelihood estimates constructed from MC simulations. These are good and efficient, but the method has a few shortcomings compared to using ML algorithms. I will present our work so far in using BDTs to classify electrons, some preliminary results, and some of our future hopes and dreams.
