Studying the longitudinally polarized fraction of $W^\pm W^\pm$ scattering at the LHC is crucial to examine the unitarization mechanism of the vector boson scattering amplitude through Higgs and possible new physics. We apply here for the first time a Deep Neural Network classification to extract the longitudinal fraction. Based on fast simulation implemented with the Delphes framework, significant improvement from a deep neural network is found to be achievable and robust over all dijet mass…
