How is Artificial Intelligence Changing How We do Science?

Since the late 1980s particle physicists have used AI even as the concept of a neural network was barely in the public’s consciousness. AI and particle physics go hand in hand as the experiments the physicists perform usually revolves around seeking out patterns in the data from particle detectors and AI is excellent at pattern detection. Boaz Klima, a Physicists from the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, also called Fermilab, says “It took us several years to convince people that this is not just some magic, hocus-pocus, black box stuff.” He was amongst the first to adopt AI tools but today, it’s a part of standard particle physics practices. Neural networks search for fingerprints of new particles in the debris of collisions at the LHC. © 2012 CERN, FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ALICE COLLABORATION Usually, particle physicists aim to comprehend the way the inner gears of the universe works, typically by colliding subatomic particles at hit speeds to break them down into even smaller and more unusual kinds of matter. For example the Higgs boson particle, discovered in 2012 by physicists using the Large Hadron Collider, the inscrutable particle is the key to a physics explanation of they way that…
