Modern particle accelerators provide exceptional beams for new discoveries in science. Increasing beam requirements make their operation more demanding and today, a fully autonomous accelerator seems far out of reach. However, this project takes the first steps to a remedy. It brings reinforcement learning to linear accelerator operation at DESY and KIT.
The project is funded by Helmholtz AI, the Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit, project call 2019. It is a collaboration between KIT and DESY.
