The quest to understand the fundamental building blocks of nature and their interactions is one of the oldest and most ambitious of human scientific endeavors. As the world's most powerful particle collider, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) represents a huge step forward in this quest. The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson demonstrates the great scientific value of the LHC and the Higgs particle itself represents a new tool for discovery. In this talk, we present our work using deep learning techniques on the Blue Waters supercomputing to develop and optimize a novel method of identifying the decays of highly-boosted Higgs bosons produced at the LHC a signature of new particles and/or phenomena at the energy frontier of particle physics. We also discuss our ongoing work using Blue Waters to develop scalable cyberinfrastructure for sustainable and reproducible data analysis workflows through the NSF-funded IRIS-HEP Institute and SCAILFIN project.
