VINGROUP TO REACH TOP 30 AT INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MACHINE LEARNING (ICML) 2020

Update: July, 16/2020 - 16:39

VinAI Research Institute (a member of Vingroup Group) had 3 accepted papers at the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 2020. This is the first time a Vietnamese company ranked as the Top 30 contributing institutions at ICML 2020, shoulder to shoulder with the leading research centers of Apple, NEC and NTT.

Three accepted papers of VinAI Research focus on important issues in current AI research including development of the optimal computational method to compare the distributions from big data; deep learning of key representations from image data, video for optimal control problems and proposal of effective deductive methods for complex non-linear dynamic neural systems.

The research on comparing distributions from big data is the basis for many machine learning algorithms, contributing to the promotion of unattended machine learning algorithms - one of the most concerned issues in artificial intelligence, computer vision, and natural language processing and understanding. Meanwhile, the research on data representation and nonlinear dynamic systems forms the basis of a breakthrough in the development of automation robots or self-driving cars.

This is the first time a Vietnamese company reached Top 30 contributing institutions at the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) which has been always attended by developed nations in technology such as USA, UK, China, Canada, etc. The event not only marks the position of VinAI in the world technology community, but also shows its transformation into a leading technology corporation, gradually integrating and reaching the global technology peak.

“The world has gradually become aware of Vietnam's AI researches thank to VinAI's efforts. We will continue to cooperate with leading research institutes and universities in the world to build up a network of exchanges and research to gradually bring the world's artificial intelligence closer to Vietnam” - said Dr. Bui Hai Hung - Director of VinAI Research Institute.

Previously, in December 2019, VinAI announced the first two scientific research papers at NeurIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems) - the annual international conference on artificial neural network information processing systems. Besides intensive research, VinAI Research engineer team is making every effort to develop high-quality AI core applications and technologies. In May 2020, VinAI became one of the first companies in the world to successfully research face recognition technology when using masks.

Took place from July 12th, 2020, the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 2020 were attended virtually by the world's leading experts in artificial intelligence and machine learning. With 40 years of organization experience, ICML provides and publishes advanced research works on all aspects of machine learning. ICML, along with NeurIPS, is one the leading international academic conferences on artificial intelligence.

Box: In 2020, the International Conference on Machine Learning received 4,990 submissions from leading institutions in the world such as Google, MIT, Stanford University, Microsoft Research, Facebook AI Research, etc.; of which there is a total of 1,088 accepted papers. Google ranks the first with more than 100 accepted papers. Google's other two subsidiaries, Google Brain and Deepmind, are also in the Top 4 contributing institutions, while Microsoft ranks the third. Major research centers of Apple, NTT and NEC have 3 accepted papers, equivalent to the number of accepted papers of VinAI.
