Durham, NC (December 3, 2018) Infinia ML, an advanced machine learning company that delivers transformative automation solutions and data science to enterprise businesses, is celebrating more accepted research papers at the world’s most prestigious machine learning conference.

The Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS, formerly NIPS), which has been compared to the AI world’s version of SXSW and CES, accepted less than 21% of submitted papers in 2018.

Among the accepted works is a paper co-authored by Infinia ML Research Scientist Hongteng Xu. “Distilled Wasserstein Learning for Word Embedding and Topic Modeling,” proposes a machine learning method for hospital patient admission records that could help predict mortality and recommend procedures.

Dr. Xu and his colleagues are conference veterans. Infinia ML Chief Scientist Larry Carin co-authored three papers at NeurIPS this year, including Xu’s. In 2017 he was the event’s most-published researcher with ten papers. Altogether, Dr. Carin has contributed 44 papers to the conference since 2004. Infinia ML Data Scientist Ricardo Henao has contributed eleven since 2009.

This year’s NeurIPS conference is in Montreal through Saturday December 8th, 2018.
