It’s not common that an artificial intelligence conference sells out as fast as a music festival, but as the Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) conference found out last year, it’s certainly possible.

Running for its thirty-third year, the conference introduced several new ideas to help with its exploding growth, increasing calls for diversity and inclusiveness, and the general rising interest in artificial intelligence.

In the last decade, we’ve seen learning-based systems provide transformative solutions for a wide range of perception and reasoning problems, from recognizing objects in images to recognizing and translating human speech. Recent progress in deep reinforcement learning (i.e. integrating deep neural networks into reinforcement learning systems) suggests that the same kind of success could be realized in automated decision making domains. If fruitful, this line of work could allow learning-based systems to tackle active control tasks, such as robotics and autonomous driving, alongside the passive perception tasks to which they have already been successfully applied.
