Weekly News: Artificial Neural Networks at CMS, the world’s largest secure email provider; ProtonMail and LHC, 10 years at the energy frontier!

Mar 16, 2020

Just in case you missed our weekly digest, you can find out more here!

Our day-to-day lives are impacted by artificial neural networks which are used for a variety of tasks (virtual assistants, facial recognition and self-driving cars amongst many other applications ) . At CMS they are using artificial neural networks to search for exotic particles generated by the proton-proton collisions inside the LHC, find out more here: https://home.cern/news/news/experiments/cms-artificial-neural-networks-search-exotic-particles

Speaking of a different kind of proton, did you know that CERN alumni are behind the world’s largest secure email provider; ProtonMail?  Editor of the CERN Courier, Matthew Chalmers, caught up with the CEO and CTO of ProtonMail for a recent interview: https://cerncourier.com/a/from-susy-to-the-boardroom/   Furthermore,  10-15% of Proton Technologies AG’s staff is CERN scientists and they are now recruiting. Check out the opportunities here:

Finally, we are pleased to announce that the March/April 2020 edition of the CERN Courier is now available online, featuring in particular “LHC, 10 years at the energy frontier”. Read it here: https://cerncourier.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/CERNCourier2020MarApr-digitaledition.pdf
