Artificial Intelligence (AI) for design is a relatively new but active area of research but when it comes to detector design, surprisingly this is an area of applications at its infancy.
Nonetheless the Electron Ion Collider (EIC), the future ultimate machine to study the strong force, utilized AI starting from the design phase. EIC is a large-scale experiment with an integrated detector that covers the central, far-forward, and far-backward regions. In general, we deal with compute intensive simulation and detectors made by multiple sub-detectors, each characterized by a multidimensional design space and multiple design criteria. In this context, AI offers state of the art solutions to design detectors in an efficient way. This talk provides an overview of these techniques and recent progress made during the EIC detector proposal; it will also cover how this work could further progress in the near future.
