ACAT 2019 Saas-Fee

The next ACAT will be held in Saas-Fee,  one of the greatest ski resort in Switzerland.

From March 11 to 15, 2019, you are invited to attend and contribute to the mornings and evenings sessions of the workshop. The afternoons will be free for informal discussions or for the ski and mountain lovers.

ACAT 2019 is foreseen to be a landmark in the series  as we stand at a dramatic moment in the history of computing and physics research. At a time where the  advances in AI, deep learning (DL), quantum computing (QC), high performance computing (HPC) as well as dedicated chips (GPU, TPU, neuromorphic), separately as well as in combination, will change drastically the way physics research is done.

AI is nature inspired

Artificial intelligence is deeply-rooted to the observation of natural processes making many AI algorithms nature-inspired. Some are trying with difficulty to reproduce human/animal capabilities like pattern recognition or  “acting intelligently”, other are providing super-humans performances, pushing to the edge simple human repetitive tasks like searching/sorting/making correlations like in deep mining.

Go game and loop integrals

At  the ACAT workshop held in Tsukuba  in 2003, Jos Vermasseren (NIKHEF, Amsterdam) compared the strategies in the game of Go and in solving equations for loop integrals in his presentation “The rules of physics“. Loop integrals are elements of computations appearing in computing higher order Feynman diagrams, at the kernel of any precise prediction for High Energy Physics (HEP).
