Title: Two for the Price of One: The Hyperbolic Higgs / What is the Machine Learning?
Host: Terning
Room: 432
Abstract: I will present two (completely unrelated) half hour seminars. "The Hyperbolic Higgs" is a model of neutral naturalness with Standard Model neutral gauge top parters. I will present the underlying mechanism in general terms followed by a description of a complete model. "What is the Machine Learning?" frames the question posed by the title in terms of a new method -- data planing -- for uncovering what features of a data set are being utilized by a machine learning algorithm (in this case neural networks) to discriminate signal from background. I will explain how this procedure works and will demonstrate its efficacy for an LHC signature that emerges when simply extending the Standard Model with a new heavy gauge boson.
