Particle Physics in the Higgs era

Our understanding of the weak force has been spectacularly verified with the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. But not all is well, and more importantly, where does particle physics go from here? I will review the major shortcomings of the Standard Model of Particle Physics and discuss how they motivate new precision investigations of the electroweak interactions at present and future colliders. These theoretical developments are joined by a rapid adoption and the development of machine learning techniques in the context of particle phenomenology, which will enable the most robust constraints on the presence of new interactions beyond the Standard Model or facilitate their discovery.
