In this video from PASC18, Andrew P. Lundgren from the University of Portsmouth presents: Data Quality for Gravitational-Wave Detectors.
“Gravitational-wave detectors are extremely complicated and unprecedentedly sensitive machines. We monitor many thousands of sensors and control systems to detect any hardware problems, electronics failures, noise from the environment, and all the many other subtle issues which degrade our sensitivity. I’ll talk about many of the ways that we mine this large data set, including methods from signal processing and statistics, machine learning, and citizen science, to diagnose and solve the issues obstructing our searches for gravitational waves.”
