ML@GT to Present Nine Papers at Competitive Machine Learning Conference

The International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) received nearly 5,000 submissions for its 2020 conference and accepted 1,088 papers. Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) researchers authored nine accepted papers.

The papers explore topics like privacy, semantics in predictive agents, data science, and artificial intelligence. One paper, Boosting Frank-Wolfe by Chasing Gradients, proposes a new state-of-the-art algorithm for constrained optimization, an area already addressed in work accepted in 2019.

“I think we’re going to see a lot more work moving in the direction of general artificial intelligence, especially work that is trying to combine learning and reasoning,” said Le Song, an associate director at ML@GT.

ML@GT faculty members are also participating in the conference outside of presenting accepted papers. School of Interactive Computing and ML@GT assistant professor Judy Hoffman served as a conference area chair. Rachel Cummings, an assistant professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) and ML@GT, co-organized the workshop ECOnomics of Privacy and Data Labor (EcoPaDL.)

Song is also organizing a workshop, Bridge Deep Learning and Reasoning. Turing Award winner Yoshua Bengio will give a keynote at the workshop to explain this emerging trend.

The conference was originally planned to be held in Vienna, Austria but was moved online due to Covid-19. It will virtually take place July 12-18th.
