HEP in the Cloud Computing and Open Science Era


Lukas Alexander Heinrich







As the LHC readies for Run-3 and its second decade of data-taking, the world around us is changing rapdily. Since the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 cloud computing has fundamentally changed the style and access of distributed computing, Deep Learning and Data Science have entered the public vocabulary and Open Science and Reproducibility has been grown in importance. The LHC experiment, with their vast amounts of data, unique dataset is necessarily find themselves at the forefront of these developments. In this talk, I will discuss about how these trends enable new research avenues and data anlaysis capabilities, such as a systematic reinterpretation program for Beyond the Standard Model search usinng cloud-native workflows and RECAST,  "rediscovering" the Higgs boson in CERN Open Data within a few minutes on the cloud, to enabling third-party research through open access to high-fidelity data products of LHC searches  the wider HEP community.
