Particle physics always has been at the frontier of a search for new principles and new particles. Large scale facilities, latest data analysis, and gigantic collaborations have become a norm in the research of particle physics and armed with the latest theories we have been closing on the mysteries of the origin of the universe. These kinds of research methods at the extreme level have seen limits these days. Limits of experimental tools, data exceeding the capability to analyze, and limits on new funding are just part of the story. There is also a need for fresh new ideas. Artificial intelligence might help the high energy physics community to discover a new particle and new principles. I will introduce some tools of deep learning that might be useful in these discoveries.
