All MLers are welcome to participate !
The Higgs boson Machine Learning challenge (Higgs ML) has opened on May 20, 2014.
Goal: filtering ATLAS-CERN simulated data to support analysis of more significant events. No background in particle physics required.
Deadline: Sept. 15th, 2014.
Awards: monetary prizes and invitation to CERN to discuss the most interesting methods with high-energy physicists.
Organizers: physicists and MLers from Atlas, Cern; Université Paris-Sud - CNRS - INRIA (LAL, LRI); Royal University College; and Chalearn.
This is the first time ever that Atlas-CERN releases some of its data.
To learn more about the both the ML formalization and the physics context, the documentation.
