NIPS conference


#1

Anyone here going to NIPS next week? If so say hi here and we can meet up.

I don’t have anything there, but it was too close this year not to go. Gonna go with a couple other grad students from our lab.

I’m pretty pumped about the ML fireworks. I hope we get some DOTA bots or fancy robots or whatever to watch.


#2

I will be there as well. I’m driving down with Ben and another labmate from UCSB.

I’ll be presenting a poster on using constraints to make neural networks parameters identifiable in the Bayesian Neural Network Workshop. All my models/experiments were done in Stan using either NUTS or VI, so I’d love to talk Stan or just Bayesian inference in general with whoever is around.
