van der Schaar Lab at NeurIPS 2022: 7 papers and 2 workshops

The van der Schaar Lab will make another strong showing at NeurIPS – widely considered the world’s largest and most prestigious AI and machine learning research conference—with 7 papers accepted for publication and the organisation of 2 impactful workshops (on Synthetic Data and Causal Deep Learning) this year.

This year’s NeurIPS conference will run from 28 November to 9 December.

Papers

All 7 papers accepted for publication at NeurIPS 2022 highlight our lab’s continuing and impactful research on topics such as machine learning interpretability, data-centric AI, unsupervised ensemble learning, feature selection, transfer learning, treatment effect estimation, and, last but not least, augmenting human skills using machine learning. This research furthers the lab’s research agenda on developing cutting-edge machine learning for transforming healthcare.

Workshops

The van der Schaar lab will be organising two workshops at NeurIPS.

On Friday 2 December, for the SyntheticData4ML workshop, the van der Schaar Lab will bring together research communities in generative models, privacy, and fairness as well as industry leaders in a joint effort to develop the theory, methodology, and algorithms to generate synthetic benchmark datasets with the goal of enabling ethical and reproducible ML research.

Also on Friday 2 December, the van der Schaar Lab will present a workshop on Causality for Real-world Impact: CML4Impact 22. Real-world problems aren’t granted the luxury of making strict assumptions, yet still require causal thinking to solve. Armed with the rigour of causality, and the can-do-attitude of machine learning, the lab believes the time is ripe to start working towards solving real-world problems.

The conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is the largest and most prestigious conference in AI and machine learning.

The purpose of NeurIPS is to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects. The core focus is peer-reviewed novel research which is presented and discussed in the general session, along with invited talks by leaders in their field.

The conference was founded in 1987 and is now a multi-track interdisciplinary annual meeting that includes invited talks, demonstrations, symposia, and oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. Along with the conference is a professional exposition focusing on machine learning in practice, a series of tutorials, and topical workshops that provide a less formal setting for the exchange of ideas.

This year’s NeurIPS conference will run from 28 November to 9 December.
