Daniil Polykovskiy and Dmitry Vetrov in collaboration with Insilico Medicine (Alexander Zhebrak, Yan Ivanenkov, Vladimir Aladinskiy, Polina Mamoshina, Marine Bozdaganyan, Alexander Aliper, Alex Zhavoronkov, and Artur Kadurin) have published "Entangled Conditional Adversarial Autoencoder for de Novo Drug Discovery" paper in the Molecular Pharmaceutics journal where they applied modern Deep Learning techniques to the problem of molecules generation.
We're happy to inform that our group got two papers accepted to NIPS 2018: "Loss Surfaces, Mode Connectivity, and Fast Ensembling of DNNs" (spotlight talk) by Timur Garipov*, Dmitrii Podoprikhin*, Dmitry Vetrov in collaboration with Pavel Izmailov* (our alumni) and Andrew Gordon Wilson from Cornell University (* denotes equal contribution) and "Quantifying Learning Guarantees for Convex but Inconsistent Surrogates" by Kirill Struminsky and Anton Osokin (equal contribution) in collaboration with Simon Lacoste-Julien from University of Montreal.
Also, our reviewers' contribution has been recognized: Anton Osokin made it into top-200 reviewers, and Dmitry Vetrov got in top 30%.
Over the course of last week over a hundred students from all over the world gathered in Moscow to familiarize themselves with modern research on Bayesian Deep Learning. The school presented an intense in-depth immersion through both lectures and practical assignments. The lecturers included not only the members of our group, but some prominent invited speakers as well: Max Welling from University of Amsterdam, Maurizio Filippone from EURECOM, Alessandro Achille from University of California, Los Angeles, Sergey Bartunov and Michael Figurnov from DeepMind.
The slides, videos and practicals are available at deepbayes.ru
A short paper "Bayesian Compression for Natural Language Processing" by Nadezhda Chirkova, Ekaterina Lobacheva and Dmitry Vetrov was accepted to EMNLP 2018, and will be presented in Brussels during the main conference.
Dmitry Vetrov was invited to give a talk at Google DeepMind. He presented recent results on Bayesian Deep Learning our group has discovered.
Samsung has officially opened its new Samsung AI Center in Moscow, where among others Dmitry Vetrov and our group will be involved in research on Bayesian Methods and Deep Learning.
A paper "Conditional Generators of Words Definitions" by Artyom Gadetsky, Ilya Yakubovskiy and Dmitry Vetrov was accepted to ACL 2018, and will be presented in Melbourne later this year.
