IBM Research AI Advancing, Trusting, and Scaling Learning at ICLR

Share this post:

The annual International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) takes place May 6­–9, 2019, in New Orleans, LA. IBM researchers will present recent work on advancing, trusting, and scaling learning with applications in vision, speech, language, audio, interpretability, robustness, meta-learning, learning optimization, and reduced precision training. See details on our regular and workshop papers below and plan to attend our sessions. IBM Research is a Gold sponsor of ICLR and will be on-site at booth #211.
