Physics ∩ ML Seminar
Anomaly detection in the search for new physics
Time: 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
Place: Online Seminar: Please sign up for our mailing list at for zoom link
Speaker: Gregor Kasieczka, Hamburg University
Abstract: Given the absence of new physics discovered in direct searches at colliders, new strategies revolving around the use of machine learning to discover anomalous events in data are increasingly proposed and carried out. This talk will discuss how such anomaly detectors can be trained in a data-driven way, what key challenges are, and how they can be overcome.

GREAT IDEAS DEI coffee hour
Time: 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Place: Chamberlin 5280 or online at
Abstract: We will be discussing this article, Do introductory courses disproportionately drive minoritized students out of STEM pathways? We are asking people to focus on the abstract, significance statement, future work, and conclusions. We also welcome attendees who have not had a chance to read the article.

GREAT IDEAS stands for Group for Reading, Educating, And Talking about Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Advocacy in Science. It is a multimedia reading group dedicated to amplifying the experiences of underrepresented groups in science and academia in order to become better advocates for our peers. GREAT IDEAS is open to everyone (students/ faculty/ staff/ etc), and all are welcome and encouraged to engage with the material and contribute to the discussions. To keep a welcoming and safe environment for everyone, we ask that everyone understand and adhere to our community guidelines for the discussions. If you would like to submit an article for a future GREAT IDEAS discussion, you can do so on this form.
Host: GMaWiP and Climate and Diversity Committee (contact Jessie Thwaites or Mallory Conlon with questions)
