Apple sponsored the Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) conference, which was held virtually from December 6 to 12. NeurIPS is a global conference focused on fostering the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects.
The Mac has long been a popular platform for developers, engineers, and researchers. Now, with Macs powered by the all new M1 chip, and the ML Compute framework available in macOS Big Sur, neural networks can be trained right on the Mac with a huge leap in performance.
