Source-Agnostic Gravitational-Wave Detection with Recurrent Autoencoders

  title={Source-Agnostic Gravitational-Wave Detection with Recurrent Autoencoders},
  author={Eric A. Moreno and J. R. Vlimant and Maria Spiropulu and Bartlomiej Borzyszkowski and Maurizio Pierini},
We present an application of anomaly detection techniques based on deep recurrent autoencoders to the problem of detecting gravitational wave signals in laser interferometers. Trained on noise data, this class of algorithms could detect signals using an unsupervised strategy, i.e., without targeting a specific kind of source. We develop a custom architecture to analyze the data from two interferometers. We compare the obtained performance to that obtained with other autoencoder architectures… Expand
