Description

Machine learning has transformed how many analyses are performed at the LHC. I will demonstrate this by showing how machine learning has been and is used in studying the selected properties of the Higgs boson. I will discuss selected example analyses and highlight the sensitivity and other improvements from machine learning. I will conclude by discussing limitations and future perspectives.
