This proposal presents the idea of using current machine learning techniques and algorithms to reduce the overall noise floor of the LIGO detectors. There will be a hard emphasis on techniques that analyze time series data, such as utilizing long short-term memory and nonlinear regression algorithms. While other sources of noises in the detectors are outlined in the proposal, there will be a focus on using machine learning algorithms to hone in on noise sources coming from the physical attributes of the instrument itself. The goal is to increase the sensitivity of the detectors by subtracting linear and non-linear noise coupling mechanisms.
