Transforming the Real World with AI: Petuum at NeurIPS 2019

2 min read

December 3, 2019

In less than one week, the Petuum team will be heading to Vancouver, Canada, for the Thirty-third Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) to showcase how Petuum is transforming the real world with AI. NeurIPS 2019 will take place at the Vancouver Convention Center from December 8th to 14th, 2019. Each year, thousands of leading academics and researchers gather at NeurIPS to exchange research on neural information processing systems in biological, technological, mathematical and theoretical aspects.

As one of the world’s most prestigious machine learning conferences, NeurIPS had a record-breaking 6,743 submissions this year (more than double the 3,240 in 2016) which only 1,428 were accepted. Of the 21% of accepted papers, we are proud to announce that Petuum authors had five conference papers accepted. Additionally, we had five workshop papers accepted including, Mansi Gupta’s talk at the Women in Machine Learning Workshop that was selected as one of the 8 of ~600 submissions this year.

Along with our accepted conference and workshop papers (listed below), Petuum will be present at NeurIPS 2019 as a gold sponsor. We invite attendees to stop by our booth in the Exhibit Hall to see demos of our latest work, such as Petuum Neurobots, which provide cutting-edge AI capabilities in an easy-to-implement software solution. Neurobots AI/ML enhances traditional automation processes with sophisticated capabilities that include computer vision, context understanding, decision making, and more.

At Petuum, we’re working on real problems with our combined research and systems development in ML distributed systems and resource schedulers, general-purpose composable ML, time-series, natural language processing, computer vision, and real-time optimization. And we are looking forward to showing off our work next week in Vancouver. We are very proud of our researchers and their accomplishments that are helping artificial intelligence and machine learning grow. Through their hard work and dedication to the field, we are getting closer to our goal of making AI accessible to all companies in all industries.
