On Friday 29th November, Imperial College researchers who will attend the NeurIPS conference in Vancouver next week presented their posters and talks.
On the 29th November, the Data Science Institute organized a workshop, called Imperial @ NeurIPS, where Imperial College researchers whose posters or talks have been accepted for the Neural Information Processing Systems conference (NeurIPS) could present and discuss their work.
Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is a prestigious peer reviewed conference focusing on research in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and related areas.
The day was opened by professor Yike Guo, director of the Data Science Institute (DSI), who welcomed the participants and highlighted the role of the DSI in creating a platform across departments for researchers to share expertise in AI and machine learning.
The speakers covered several topics, from auxiliary learning to logical reasoning and from crowdsourced classification to structured prediction. The talks were followed by a poster session.
Dr Sesh Kumar, co-organizer with Dr Kai Sun of the workshop says: “We had very insightful discussions after the talks and during the poster session. This workshop is the first step to offer to researchers across departments the opportunity to get an insight into others’ work and start collaborations.”
This year’s edition of NeurIPS will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from the 8th to the 14th December and Imperial College will attend with a delegation of 9 PhD students and postgraduate researchers.
