Monday November 4th, 2019 at 4:00 PM 120 Engineering (Hammond Auditorium) The MicroBooNE experiment consists of liquid argon time projection hamber(LArTPC) situated in the path of the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermilab. The goals of the experiment are to (1) investigate the observation of an excess of a possible electron-neutrino and anti-neutrino events by the MiniBooNE experiment, (2) measure argon-nucleus cross sections, and (3) perform R&D for LArTPCs. The data from MicroBooNE, and other LArTPCs, can be naturally arranged as high-resolution images of particle tracks traversing the detector. This has spurred effort on MicroBooNE towards applying convolutional neural net-works (CNNs), a type of deep learning algorithm shown to be effective in numerous computer vision problems, to our data.
