Helmholtz AI has been established to support scientists across the Helmholtz Society and across domains. The consultant team at HZDR was put in place to focus their support on matter research. That includes accelerator physics. Recently, we cooperated with DESY Hamburg on a voucher for the European XFEL.
To run experiments using the European XFEL it is essential that various laser systems work correctly. Damage to such a laser renders the conducted experiments useless, but it is, however, not obvious when such damage occurs. Therefore, we developed a method to automatically detect a defective laser system using its sensor data in a machine learning pipeline. Using only data from the healthy system for training the used clustering algorithm can detect whether unseen data is from a damaged or healthy system.

Physical Presentation I am not so sure at this point if I would present physically.
