Researchers from Paraguay take part in the DUNE project, which the Fermilab of the US Department of Energy developed with more than 1,000 experts from 31 nations. Dr. Diego Stalder, a researcher at the National Incentive Programme for Researchers (PRONII) Level I, was invited to two events as part of this collaboration: the Latin American Workshop on Data Analysis Software and the DUNE Collaboration Meeting, both of which took place at the Universities of Lancaster and Manchester in the United Kingdom.
Additionally, a working group using deep learning techniques has been established by the Faculty of Engineering of the UNA (FIUNA) to detect, identify, and segment events in the detectors. According to the National Council of Science and Technology, the group includes José Toledo and Felipe Espnola, as well as professors Diego Stalder and Jorge Molina (Conacyt).
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) project aims to provide additional insight on the Big Bang event and following events in the Universe by examining the behavior of particles known as neutrinos and their antimatter cousins, the antineutrinos. Data generated by this experiment will grow exponentially, necessitating the usage of automated analytic methods.
Simulated data from the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber has been generated in order to develop, test, and enhance artificial intelligence systems to reconstruct events from these detectors. Dr. Stalder points out that taking part in these activities is crucial for FIUNA because it will help the university secure money to expand its research in the field and local resources to engage more students and access computing resources.
