AI/ML has become ubiquitous in nuclear physics in the last few years and new possibilities have been emerging. This is an opportune time for Hall C to take advantage of these developments in computing technologies and statistical methods and define its path forward. The main goal of the Hall C AI/ML Working Group will be to provide a forum for discussion for anyone interested in defining this path, exploring possible applications of AI/ML in Hall C, and connecting to data scientists.
The kick-off meeting will focus on identifying possible bottlenecks in the Hall C science output workflow (spectrometer setting, data acquisition, detector monitoring, design, calibrations, online/offline analysis, etc.) and creating a priority list of applications where AI/ML may assist and optimize this workflow. In developing the list we will consider physics impact for Hall C, timelines when AI/ML tools would need to be available, etc.
