I am taking a Deep Learning course at the university I work at and as part of that course we need to do a project where we apply Deep Learning to a problem in any domain. I am interested in Particle Physics and wanted to try something in that realm.
I would want to do something similar to what has been done in this paper (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1742-6596/1085/4/042037) Basically just make a “toy” neutrino detector experiment with a sphere of scintillator attach PMTs around it and simulate some background radioactive decays and inverse beta decay signals.
How hard would it be to run such a simulation in GEANT4? I am a C++ developer, so the language and setting up GEANT4 on my computer isnt an issue.
Any insights, or similar examples would be greatly appreciated?
