Exploring Naturalness at the Large Hadron Collider Using Machine Learning

Despite the great success of the current Standard Model of Particle Physics, questions around the
elusive dark matter and Higgs boson mass suggest new physics beyond the Standard Model to be discovered at the Large Hadron Collider. I will discuss searches for natural supersymmetry, in particular, supersymmetric partners of the top quark, the Higgs boson, and gauge bosons using the data collected at the Large Hadron Collider. Novel machine learning techniques have been explored in these searches for identifying top quarks and Higgs and gauge bosons and for separating signals from backgrounds. Recent results from these
searches will be presented, as well as future prospects of these searches and new exploration.
