The 2019 Byte Tech AI Symposium Machine Intelligence Frontier Forum will be held on January 19th in the back hall of the main building of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Organized by the Chinese Association For Artificial Intelligence, Byte Dance and Tsinghua University, the forum gathers top experts and scholars of data mining, machine learning and natural language processing from home and abroad. They will share their researches as well as the development trend in the field of artificial intelligence.
In 2018, CAAI associated with Byte Dance and Tsinghua University to jointly organize the Byte Cup 2018 International Machine Learning Contest. The competition was a complete success. The participants formed a total of nearly 1,100 teams from over 400 institutions in more than 30 countries, which, apart from China Mainland, includes the United States, Russia, Japan, Vietnam, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Macao and other countries and regions. The participants are not only from colleges such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, National University of Defense Technology, Fudan University, Zhejiang University, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Maryland University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, but also from enterprises including IBM, Microsoft, Tencent, Netease and Sogou.
At the beginning of 2019, associating with Byte Dance and Tsinghua University again, CAAI will organize a technology sharing conference and an award ceremony for Byte Cup 2018.
Besides, several scientists from Byte Dance will comprehensively introduce the application of various fields of machine learning in different products of Byte Dance. The topics of the introduction includes: How does totiao.com recommend the contents to you that are interested in? How does Tik Tok put the cat ears to the user’s head in real-time video? Why can the automatic writing robot quickly write understandable short news during the World Cup?

Features of the event
Feature 1: Full coverage of Byte Dance’s researches in machine learning.
The event invited a number of scientists including Ma Weiying, head of Byte Dance AI Laboratory, and Li Hang, director of the same laboratory. Their research interests include machine learning, data mining, natural language processing, information retrieval, computer vision, multimedia analysis, recommendation algorithms , audio and music processing, speech recognition and synthesis, and dialogue. Their research has been applied to almost all the products of Byte Dance: toutiao.com, Tik Tok, iXiGua, huoshan.com, and Faceu. In addition, the event also invited Dawn Song, professor of the University of UC Berkeley, Dan Roth, professor of University of Pennsylvania, and Sun Maosong, professor of Tsinghua University.
Feature 2: On-site job fair, face to face with Byte Dance
At the end of the afternoon activities of the event, the research scientist from Byte Dance will work with the human resources department to communicate directly with the audience. If you want to know the research interests, working environment, and recruitment standards of Byte Dance AI Lab, you can communicate on the spot. There is also a chance to submit resumes to Byte Dance and it is not impossible to take the offer on site.
Feature3: Award ceremony for Byte Cup 2018
The 2018 Byte Cup International Machine Learning Contest has ended. It is a global AI competition jointly sponsored by CAAI, Byte Dance, Tsinghua University and IEEE. The theme of the competition is "How to make the machine generate a title for the article?". In the three-month contest period, nearly 1,100 teams from more than 400 countries and over 100 institutions signed up for the competition. Among them, the top 7 teams received a total of 20,000 US dollars in prizes and certificates issued by CAAI and Byte Dance. In this Byte Tech event, winners will present their methods on the spot, and other contestants can also communicate with them directly.
