Apple to attend machine learning conference in Canada

Apple today announced that it will participate in the 32nd Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems, or NeurIPS) – event which will be held this year in the city of Montreal (Canada) next week.

During the conference, Apple will have members of its machine learning team at a booth, and announced that it is building a new team of researchers and engineers who can insert such artificial intelligence into the products and services developed by the company.

NeurIPS is considered the largest and most influential conference on artificial intelligence and machine learning in the world. Therefore, Apple is likely to take the time to showcase its technologies and advances in these areas – in addition to recruiting new names for its team.

Regarding job openings, the company described on another page that it is naturally looking for people with experience in machine learning who know different methods related to the topic (supervised and unsupervised, generative models and temporal learning), in addition to knowledge in computer vision and technological language.

As we have already mentioned, these technologies are increasingly present in products developed by Apple, such as Apple Maps and Siri – including in the HDR Smart feature of new iPhones. Speaking of which, the new models of gadget from Apple also present the new generation of Neural Engine, its chip dedicated to artificial intelligence – now capable of performing 5 trillion operations per second.
