The 36th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) is by all accounts a premier conference in the machine learning world. Thousands of papers are submitted and thousands of people from around the world travel to attend the weeklong conference.
This year was no different with over 6,000 attendees and 2,473 submitted papers. Only 621 papers were accepted, along with 31 workshops and 11 tutorials.
Georgia Tech presented 19 papers and one workshop. The Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech also hosted its first conference event for alumni, students, and faculty to gather. The center enjoyed hosting a lunch and seeing so many familiar faces all the way out in Long Beach, Calif.
While it’s humanly impossible to go to every talk during the week, we did our best.
If you were unable to make it out to Long Beach this year, we hope this helps with your FOMO. If you were fortunate enough to attend, let’s take a look back at this week together.
