Recent Developments & Results on Networking & Machine Learning for Science Founded in 1984, and working in support of the LHC program since 1994, the Caltech Network Team within the Caltech LHC HEP group is a worldwide leader in scientific network development, production, and operations. The Caltech team is collaborating with university teams from Michigan, UT Arlington, Vanderbilt, Victoria in Canada, UNICAMP and the State University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, and laboratory groups engaged in network development from the DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Fermilab, and Brookhaven National Lab. The team is working with many network partners as well, including DOE’s ESnet, Internet2, CENIC, Florida Lambda Rail, MiLR and other leading US regional networks, BCNET in Canada, leading exchange points including Starlight, AmLight, NetherLight, and CERNLight, along with GEANT, SURFNet and other European research and education networks, as well as the RNP national network and the ANSP (Sao Paulo) regional network in Brazil, on novel network system development and optimization projects focused on LHC and related applications for the last 15+ years. In the past 3 years the group is developing solutions for science challenges using Machine Learning in collaboration with FNAL, LBNL, CERN as well as NVIDIA & SuperMicro among others. We also work with Unity3D NovaVR and FNAL to create science content for VR platforms and develop powerful data visualization solutions. In the future we envision plugging an AI engine at the front end and creating a system for monitoring and interacting with multi-dimensional data in novel way. During SC16 we have a CMS.VR demo.
