Apple Attending NeurIPS 2019 Next Week, World's Largest Machine Learning Conference

Apple has announced that it will be attending the 33rd Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) in Vancouver, Canada from Sunday, December 8 through Saturday, December 14.


In a new entry to its Machine Learning Journal, Apple said its product teams are "engaged in state of the art research in machine hearing, speech recognition, natural language processing, machine translation, text-to-speech, and artificial intelligence, improving the lives of millions of customers every day."

Apple employees will be making a series of presentations at the conference. A schedule is provided in Apple's Machine Learning Journal.

Machine learning algorithms play a role in virtually every Apple product and service, ranging from Apple Maps and Apple News to Siri and the QuickType keyboard on iPhone and iPad. Apple has machine learning jobs available in areas such as artificial intelligence, computer vision, data science, and deep learning.

State of the art research ? Surely they can’t be referring to Siri ?

They have literally gone an entire generation of AI without doing much to improve it (7-8 years). I think they'll probably just wait for AGI to become mainstream, then they'll jump on it.

I feel like Siri has actually gotten worse somehow, not better. :(
