Advancing Knowledge Discovery at KDD 2018

The annual Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Knowledge Discovery and Data mining conference (KDD 2018) takes place August 19–23, 2018, in London, UK. The interdisciplinary conference brings together researchers and practitioners from data science, data mining, knowledge discovery, large-scale data analytics, and big data with two tracks: Research Track and Applied Data Science Track. IBM researchers are serving as the KDD 2018 General Chair and on the organizing committees of both tracks. KDD 2018 also features full- and half-day workshops highlighting new and emerging areas in knowledge discovery and data science, several of which have been co-organized by IBM researchers. IBM Research is a Gold sponsor at KDD 2018 and is also sponsoring the Health Day Best Paper Award and the best student paper award travel grant for the Workshop on Machine Learning for Medicine and Healthcare. Our researchers will present multiple technical papers at KDD 2018 and its workshops, as well as a tutorial on deep learning in healthcare as part of the first Health Day at KDD. The tutorial will cover basic deep learning methods and their applications in healthcare data, including challenges and proposed solutions. Check our schedule of papers and workshops below and plan to attend these sessions to learn more.

IBM Research AI will be exhibiting at KDD at booth 5. We’ll be demonstrating our new Corpus Conversion Service, which will be presented in a technical session on August 23. This machine learning platform is designed to ingest PDF documents at scale and extract the knowledge and structure they contain. Visit the booth for a preview and to talk with IBM researchers about our work.
