The first week of the 35th conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS2021) saw eight fascinating invited talks, tutorials, affinity group workshops, and a new datasets and benchmarks track. There were also poster sessions, oral sessions, competitions, demonstrations, and more. With this compilation of tweets, we look back on the week. "The greatest violence is the product of remoteness from reality" – a great talk by Mary L. Gray, The Banality of Scale: A Theory on the Limits of Modeling Bias and Fairness Frameworks for Social Justice (and other lessons from the Pandemic) at #NeurIPS2021 'How duolingo uses AI to Asses, Engage and Teach Better' session @NeurIPSConf is . The final #NeurIPS2021 keynote starts soon! Radhika Nagpal will speak about "The Collective Intelligence of Army Ants, and the Robots They Inspire" at 15:00 GMT (10am EST).https://t.co/hSBUpuwUI8
NeurIPS 2019, the latest incarnation of the Neural Information Processing Systems conference, wrapped up just over a week ago. Multiple great blog posts have already summarized various talks and key trends, so the goal of this piece is more humble: to reflect on the experience of attending the conference, and in particular whether its vast size is harmful to its purpose as a research conference. Thirteen thousand attendees, 1,428 accepted papers, and 57 workshops vast. This is 9 minutes condensed down to 15 seconds, and this is not even close to all the attendees! Is that a Rolling Stones concert?
The conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) 2020 kicked off on Sunday 6th December and will run until Saturday 12th December. Here, we give a brief summary of many of the planned sessions and events for the week ahead. The public version of the schedule can be found here. You will need to be registered to access all of the content. Note that we have included links to the public versions in this article.
