Abstract: Studying the longitudinally polarized fraction of W±W± scattering at the LHC is crucial to examine the unitarization mechanism of the vector boson scattering amplitude through Higgs and possible new physics. We apply here for the first time a deep neural network classification to extract the longitudinal fraction. Based on fast simulation implemented with the Delphes framework, significant improvement from a deep neural network is found to be achievable and robust over all dijet mass region. A conservative estimation shows that a high significance of four standard deviations can be reached with the High-Luminosity LHC designed luminosity of 3000 fb1.
