NeurIPS 2019 Honorable Mention Ibrahim Jubran and Alaa Maalouf

The 2019 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) was held on the 8th of December in Vancouver, Canada. During which, the NeurIPS organizing committee announced the conference’s outstanding paper awards along other awards, where Ibrahim Jubran and Alaa Maalouf received an Honorable Mention Award for an Outstanding Paper, named “Fast and Accurate Least-Mean-Squares Solvers”.

In their paper, which was chosen among 7,400 other papers submitted from all over the globe, Ibrahim and Alaa presented a data compression algorithm that reduced computational complexity by one or two orders of magnitude, with no precision loss and improved numerical stability.

Reviewers emphasized the importance of the approach, for practitioners as the method can be easily implemented to improve existing algorithms, and for extension to other algorithms as the recursive partitioning principle of the approach lends itself to generalization.

About NeurIPS

The purpose of the Neural Information Processing Systems annual meeting 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. On Sunday is an Expo, where our top industry sponsors give talks, panels, demos, and workshops on topics that are of academic interest. On Monday are tutorials, which cover a broad background on current lines of inquiry, affinity group meetings, and the opening talk & reception. The general sessions are held Tuesday - Thursday, and include talks, posters, and demonstrations. Friday - Saturday are the workshops, which are smaller meetings focused on current topics, and provide an informal, cutting edge venue for discussion.
