The list of accepted papers at ICLR 2018 was released last week and Machine Learning at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) had a strong presence. Out of 935 submissions, 23 oral and 314 conference papers were accepted (roughly 36%). We are pleased to announce that Georgia Tech had 10 conference papers this year, with 1 of them being oral (2% acceptance) and 2 others within the top 100, as well as 1 additional workshop paper.
This brings GT into the Top 15 among institutions and if you only consider academic institutions it is 9th on the list (note that this is a very conservative estimate as this analysis seems to miss many GT papers). This is a testament to Georgia Tech’s strong research in ML, and we see this presence increasing significantly given the ML Ph.D. program and the number of new faculty hires in this area every year.
