MLOps Research
Publications
The research team at Abacus.AI makes fundamental contributions to the field of AI/ML that might have an impact in the short or long run and does applied research that has benefits in practice. The areas we have been focusing on include automated machine learning, meta-learning, data augmentation, deep learning optimization, and fairness/debiasing in deep learning.
The team already has an impressive list of publications in top-tier conferences and workshops in just over two years of its conception.
