The ML-Retrospectives, Surveys & Meta-Analyses @ NeurIPS 2020 Workshop is about reflecting on machine learning research. This workshop is a new edition of the previous Retrospectives Workshops at NeurIPS’19 and ICML’20 respectively. While earlier the focus of the workshop was primarily on Retrospectives, this time the focus is on surveys & meta-analyses. The enormous scale of research in AI has led to a myriad of publications. Surveys & Meta-Analyses meet the need of taking a step back and looking at a sub-field as a whole to evaluate actual progress. However, we will also accept retrospectives.

The workshop will be held on December 11, 2020.

In conjunction with NeurIPS, the workshop will be held virtually. Please see our schedule for details.
