Latest from Google AI – Google at ICML 2022

Google is a leader in machine learning (ML) research with groups innovating across virtually all aspects of the field, from theory to application. We build machine learning systems to solve deep scientific and engineering challenges in areas of language, music, visual processing, algorithm development, and more. Core to our approach is to actively engage with the broader research community by open-sourcing datasets and models, publishing our discoveries, and actively participating in leading conferences.

Google is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of the thirty-ninth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML 2022), a premier annual conference, which is being held this week in Baltimore, Maryland. Google has a strong presence at this year’s conference with over 100 accepted publications and active involvement in a number of workshops and tutorials. We look forward to sharing some of our extensive ML research and expanding our partnership with the broader ML research community.
