In the next decade, the frontiers of High Energy Physics (HEP) will be explored by three machines: the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) in Europe, the Long Base Neutrino Facility (LBNF) in the US, and the International Linear Collider (ILC) in Japan. These next generation experiments must address two fundamental problems in the current generation of HEP experimental software: the inability to take advantage and adapt to the rapidly evolving processor landscape, and the difficulty in developing and maintaining increasingly complex software systems by physicists. I will first speculate on how techniques and tools from Data Science and Deep Learning may help alleviate these issues. I will then present a simple demonstration of Deep Neural Network event classification using raw data from Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPC) experiments and present a roadmap towards DNN full event reconstruction. Finally I will discuss how representing data as Tensors and using Direct Acyclic Graph optimization techniques, as done in Deep Learning software such as Theano and TensorFlow, could alleviate HEP software challenges in future HEP software frameworks.
