At the NeurIPS 2019 conference CIFAR introduced its new AI Chairs and a new grant program, and hosted the panel discussion Foundations in Machine Learning, where researchers from Mila, Amii and the Vector brainstormed on their work, looked at machine learning trends and offered advice to students.
“We’ve made huge progress, much more than even my friends and I expected a few years ago. But (the progress) is mostly about perception, things like computer vision and speech recognition and synthesis of some things in natural processing. We’re still far from human capabilities.”
The two-day RE•WORK Deep Learning Summit Boston 2019 gathered more than 60 speakers from top AI labs such as MIT CSAIL, Uber AI Labs, Adobe Research and other experts from the AI healthcare industry who provided high-level deep learning technical discussions and industry application insights.
The annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) is world-leading conference in the field of natural language processing, Yesterday, conference organizers sent out author notifications on accepted papers for the 57th ACL gathering, which will take place in Florence, Italy from July 28 to August 2.
NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC) attracted some 9,000 developers, buyers and innovators to San Jose, California this week. CEO and Co-Founder Jensen Huang’s two-and-a-half hour keynote speech fused GPU-based innovations in domains ranging from graphic design to autonomous driving.
Last December some 9,000 attendees packed a single venue in Montreal for a week-long academic conference. NeurIPS was completely sold out, the latest indication of just how hot AI is nowadays. As AI and machine learning continue to ignite discussion across a wide variety of disciplines, novel approaches to the tech are also garnering interest.
The 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is in full swing in Montréal. According to a booklet distributed to attendees, both NeurIPS 2019 and 2020 will take place in Vancouver, making Canada the host country three years in a row. NIPS/NeurIPS has already been held in Montreal and Vancouver a combined 13 times since the world’s leading AI conference left its Denver base in 2001.
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.
From May 14 to 18, the 30th International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2017) was held in Anchorage, AK, USA. Continuing the long tradition, the conference is organized by the International Neural Network Society (INNS), in cooperation with the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE-CIS).
