There is growing interest in Machine Learning applications for high energy theory and phenomenology. This is motivated on the one hand by the recent paramount progresses in algorithms, software and hardware resources, and on the other hand by the large amount of data available in our field.
The aim of this workshop is to survey the current activity, contribute to shaping the key questions, and identifying promising directions. By bringing together experts and practitioners with different physics interests and backgrounds, ranging from Monte Carlo simulations to String Theory, we expect to stimulate cross-field interactions and to help consolidate Machine Learning related activities in the TH community.
Machine Learning applications for Monte Carlo simulations will be discussed during the week of overlap with the workshop "Taming the accuracy of event generators".
