A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the NeurIPS conference in Montreal. I had a wonderful time there and of course, the highlight was the chance to meet a ton of TWIML listeners. I held two fun meetups at the conference: The first was focused on AI in Production, and AI Platforms and Infrastructure and it attracted a pretty nice crowd. We basically took over a dumpling restaurant in chinatown near the convention center. I also held a listener meetup one evening and got to hang out with listeners from all over the country and world. Of course, one of my favorite parts of the conference was the opportunity to sit down with a few of the many great researchers attending and presenting there. This week on the show, we're excited to share our 2018 NeurIPS Series.
