This week saw the running of the International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR 2021). This event is dedicated to research on all aspects of deep learning used in the fields of artificial intelligence, statistics and data science. This includes applications such as machine vision, computational biology, speech recognition, text understanding, and robotics.
Our selection of tweets from organisers and attendees gives a flavour of the content and discussions that we’ve seen this week.
Here a little impression about finding interesting clusters of similar papers at #ICLR2021 using our paper visualization.

Among other things I really appreciate how Timnit is unerasing the contribution of our retracted co-authors and how key their contributions & perspectives were to the Stochastic Parrots paper.
