Experiments in high-energy astroparticle physics produce large amounts of data as continuous high-volume streams. Gaining insights from the observed data poses a number of challenges to data analysis at various steps in the analysis chain of the experiments. Machine learning methods have already cleaved their way selectively at some particular stages of the(More)
The First G-APD Cherenkov telescope (FACT) is dedicated to monitor bright TeV blazars in the northern sky. The use of silicon photon detectors allows for a larger duty cycle, which results in a huge amount of collected data (800 GB/night). In order to satisfy its monitoring purpose, changes in the flux of the observed sources have to be registered without(More)
The First G-APD Cherenkov Telescope (FACT) is an Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescope located on the Canary Island of La Palma. It is the first of its kind which uses Geiger-mode Avalanche Photo Diodes (G-APDs) as photosensors to detect the Cherenkov radiation emitted from secondary particles in a high-energy gamma-ray air shower. A new analysis chain has been(More)
The First G-APD Cherenkov Telescope (FACT) is an Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) located on the Canary Island of La Palma. Its goal is to provide long term monitoring of cosmic objects like Active Galactic Nuclei. FACT is the first IACT to use Silicon Photomultipliers instead of conventional Photo Multiplier Tubes. Therefore studying the detector(More)
