First Workshop on Software Engineering for Machine Learning

In conjunction with NIPS 2014

Saturday December 13, 2014 Montreal, Canada

SW4ML is a one day NIPS 2014 workshop that will cover topics at the intersection of machine learning and software architecture/engineering. This intersection is a critical area for deploying machine learning methods in practice, but is often overlooked in the literature. As a result, much of the publicly available code for download is disorganized, undocumented, and buggy. Therefore, it cannot serve as an example of how actual deployed machine-learning-heavy software should be written. Those looking to implement actual software could greatly benefit from a workshop that can provide guidance on software practices.
