🎓 OpenReviewer: Learn to improve your academic papers by generating real-time reviews.
Papers with reviews: Read top ranked arXiv and open access Nature papers.
🏛 Machine Learning for Education: Can a machine solve, explain, and generate university-level mathematics and STEM courses? Our latest research published in PNAS and featured by MIT news demonstrates that a neural network solves, explains, and generates university math problems by program synthesis and few-shot learning at human level.
🌎 Machine Learning for Climate Science: In the spirit of MIT's leading efforts to take action against climate change for a better world, we've published multidisciplinary work in Nature Scientific Reports on computer vision methods for tracking turbulent structures in the plasma of a fusion reactor, and on predicting the Atlantic Multi-decadal Variability and ocean biogeochemistry, awarded best paper: pathway to impact at NeurIPS CCAI.
🚘 Machine Learning for Autonomous Driving: Can we accurately predict trajectories and learn to drive? we've won the ICCV learning to drive challenge and continuously improve performance; society will accept autonomous vehicles once they are orders of magnitude safer than humans.
