InstaDeep’s newly published research paper Learning Compositional Neural Programs with Recursive Tree Search and Planning (in short AlphaNPI), has been selected for a spotlight presentation at the world’s largest AI conference, NeurIPS 2019.
This year saw a record-breaking number of submissions, with a total of 6743 applications. From these, only 1428 were accepted, whereof 164 as spotlight papers (2.4%).
“This is a milestone for InstaDeep and a historical first for an African-founded AI company. It all started when we met DeepMind’s Nando De Freitas at the Deep Learning Indaba 2018 in Stellenbosch, South Africa. We are excited to be presenting our research in Vancouver in December and can’t wait to see what the future has in store”, says CEO of InstaDeep, Karim Beguir.
The research effort was led by Thomas Pierrot, AI Research Engineer at InstaDeep, in collaboration with Nando De Freitas and Scott Reed from Google DeepMind.
NeurIPS 2019 takes place in Vancouver, Canada, from December 8th – 14th.
