Assembling All-Star Team for NIPS 2017 in Long Beach, CA

Post by ezubaric » Sat Nov 18, 2017 7:48 pm

We're hosting a human-computer quiz bowl competition at NIPS 2017 (the main machine learning conference). We did something similar in San Diego last year with the NASAT team:

We want to put together the best team possible; if you'd like to play or provide commentary, please let us know here:

If you sign up, we'll be contacting you after Thanksgiving. Please also spread the word over social media or to folks you think would be good for this!

Thanks!
