GammaLearn is a project to develop deep learning solutions for Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes data analysis and in particular for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) currently under construction. Its first application is the event reconstruction (to retrieve events physical properties such as type, energy and incoming direction) based on the images or videos recorded by Cherenkov telescopes.

The framework

To ease developments and experiments running, we have developed a complete environment allowing the user to:

  • load datasets
  • pre-process data (filter, augment, transform)
  • train, validate and test networks
  • monitor the training process
  • visualize training results
