The 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) kicked off today in Montréal. In their opening remarks this afternoon the NeurIPS organizing committee announced the conference’s major best paper selections and other awards. Four submissions shared top honors in the best paper category.
Deep Learning has become an essential toolbox which is used in a wide variety of applications, research labs, industries, etc. In this tutorial given at NIPS 2017, the speakers provide a set of guidelines which will help newcomers to the field understand the most recent and advanced models and their application to diverse data modalities.
Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is the long-range, human-intelligence-level target of contemporary AI researchers worldwide. It’s believed AGI has the potential to meet basic human needs globally, end poverty, cure diseases, extend life, and even mitigate climate change. In short, AGI is the tech that could not only save the world, but build a utopia.
In April the NIPS organizing committee announced that it was considering a name change and began collecting opinions and suggestions from the AI research community. Yesterday, the final results of the poll were disclosed along with the announcement that there would be no name change.
Peer review is an essential process that subjects new research to the scrutiny of other experts in the same field. Today’s top Machine Learning (ML) conferences are heavily reliant on peer review as it allows them to gauge submitted academic papers’ quality and suitability.
Last month’s ReWork Deep Learning Summit in London provided a peek at current recent research progress and future trends in artificial intelligence technologies. The two-day event featured top scientists and engineers from Facebook, MIT Media lab, DeepMind and other leading institutes.
The company made a series of AI-related announcements today at the Huawei Connect 2018 Conference in Shanghai, introducing two AI chips and a machine learning framework. Huawei’s AI push is expected to intensify its battle with domestic rivals Alibaba, Tencent and Baidu in the AI market.
The World Artificial Intelligence Conference 2018 kicked off yesterday in Shanghai, drawing top-tier AI scientists and entrepreneurs from China’s tech giants for discussions on AI’s latest technological frontiers and industrial applications.

Registration opened at 8:00 a.m. PDT today for December’s NIPS 2018 (Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems) in Montreal. The early birds were the fortunate ones this year — as tickets for the main conference were all snapped up less than a dozen minutes later.
The 24th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) opened on August 19 at the Excel Center in London, UK. Best Paper Awards go to a Technical University of Munich team for “Adversarial Attacks on Classification Models for Graphs (Adversarial Attacks on Neural Networks for Graph Data)” in the Research Track; and “Real-time Personalization using Embeddings for Search Ranking at Airbnb”, by a team from Airbnb, in the ADS Track.
At the annual Google Cloud Next conference which kicked off July 24 in San Francisco the company unveiled a series of AI-based product releases and enhancements for its analytics and machine learning tools, additional applications on G Suite, and new IoT products.
The 41st International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval is now in full swing at the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor, US — although some leading researchers won’t be attending. Yesterday the respected conference presented its Best Paper Awards.
When robots need a brain, their creators turn to Silicon Valley. Most of the AI tech that drives advanced robotics originates in Bay Area labs. At last month’s ReWork Deep Learning for Robotics Summit in San Francisco, researchers from Silicon Valley AI labs and institutes discussed their latest work and how it is being used to teach robots. Synced was onsite to bring you an inside look at their work.
The Tencent Academic and Industrial Conference (TAIC) will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on July 14th, gathering top AI researchers and young professionals from around the world. Synced is organizing the conference, where Tencent’s seven core business groups and invited academics and industry professionals will share insights on the current state of AI technologies.
