The Google Brain team — Looking Back on 2016

Posted by Jeff Dean, Google Senior Fellow, on behalf of the entire Google Brain teamThe Google Brain team’s long-term goal is to create more intelligent software and systems that improve people’s lives, which we pursue through both pure and applied research in a variety of different domains. And while this is obviously a long-term goal, we would like to take a step back and look at some of the progress our team has made over the past year, and share what we feel may be in store for 2017.Research PublicationsOne important way in which we assess the quality of our research is through publications in top tier international machine learning venues like ICML, NIPS, and ICLR. Last year our team had a total of 27 accepted papers at these venues, covering a wide ranging set of topics including program synthesis,…

The Most Popular Language For Machine Learning and Data Science Is …

By Jean-Francois Puget, IBM. What programming language should one learn to get a machine learning or data science job?  That’s the silver bullet question.  It is debated in many forums.  I could provide here my own answer to it and explain why, but I’d rather look at some data first.  After all, this is what machine learners and data scientists should do: look at data, not opinions. So, let’s look at some data.  I will use the trend search available on indeed.com.  It looks for occurrences over time of selected terms in job offers.  It gives an indication of what skills employers are seeking.  Note however that it is not a poll on which skills are effectively in use.  It is rather an advanced indicator of how skill popularity evolve (more formally, it is probably close to the first order…
