VANCOUVER B.C., December 9, 2019Element AI, a global developer of artificial intelligence-powered (AI) software services and products that help organizations operationalize AI, today announced its participation and sponsorship at the 2019 Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) conference in Vancouver, December 8-14. At the largest annual AI and machine learning conference, Element AI will join AI research scientists from across the globe to share in the latest scientific research, theories and breakthroughs in machine learning that will impact underlying technology for AI and ML-driven initiatives and products designed to automate and augment decision-making.

"Fundamental research and exploration remain at the heart and DNA of Element AI. We are excited to participate at NeurIPS 2019, and look forward to sharing dialogs about our AI research and AI for Good initiatives,” said Nicolas Chapados, Chief Science Officer at Element AI. “Working closely with our fundamental research team and partners, we remain steadfast in taking theory and research from lab to impact to help approach and solve real-world challenges," added Chapados.

Dedicated to expanding fundamental research through an open and collaborative approach, Element AI employs over 100 PhDs working with a broad and diverse international network of academic fellows and research institutions. The investment in these global research efforts has resulted in seven papers and co-organization of three workshops at NeurIPS 2019.
