The 35th conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS2021) started on Monday. So far, attendees have been enjoying the tutorials, the affinity group workshops, and the new datasets and benchmarks track. Participants are looking forward to the invited talks, poster sessions, and workshops that are coming up during the week. This compilation of tweets gives a flavour of the conference so far, and events to look out for later in the week.

If you’re at @NeurIPSConf @cephaloponderer and I have this tutorial tomorrow (Monday). We will also be joined by @alexhanna and @willie_agnew for the extended Q&A/panel—we are so thankful that they are making time for this in their extremely busy schedules. https://t.co/eMG8WdwCcB

Q. What does Noether’s theorem tell us about the “geometry of deep learning dynamics”?
A. We derive Noether’s Learning Dynamics and show:
”SGD+momentum+BatchNorm+weight decay” = “RMSProp" due to symmetry breaking!

So much of ML focuses on "zoo conditions", with iid and trustworthy data.
