C-BRIC Researchers at UIUC Selected for Spotlight at NeurIPS2021

Congratulations to C-BRIC researchers Hassan Dbouk and Naresh Shanbhag at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Dbouk and Shanbhag's paper "Generalized depthwise-separable convolutions for adversarially robust and efficient neural networks" was selected as a Spotlight paper at the NeurIPS2021. This work proposed the method of Generalized Depthwise-Separable (GDWS) convolution. GDWS dramatically improves the throughput of a standard pre-trained network on real-life hardware while preserving its robustness. The Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS2021) was held virtually December 7-10, 2021. NeurIPS allows researchers the opportunity to exchange discoveries in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
