Adversarial domain adaptation to reduce sample bias of a high energy physics classifier

Jose M. Clavijo, Paul Glaysher, Judith M. Katzy

We apply adversarial domain adaptation to reduce sample bias in a classification machine learning algorithm. We add a gradient reversal layer to a neural network to simultaneously classify signal versus background events, while minimising the difference of the classifier response to a background sample using an alternative MC model. We show this on the example of simulated events at the LHC with $t\bar{t}H$ signal versus $t\bar{t}b\bar{b}$ background classification.
