Adobe Research at AAAI 2021

February 3, 2021

In the paper “Learning to Sit“, Adobe Research and university collaborators propose a new method to synthesize physically-plausible human motion of sitting that involves substantial variations of human-object interactions and complex motion planning.

The 2021 AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-21) is being held virtually this week, from February 2 to 9, 2021. AAAI is one of the top research conferences on machine learning. In recent years, deep learning approaches have made a significant impact at this conference. 

Adobe will present a total of nine papers at the conference on research topics including computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, and many more. Six Adobe papers will be presented at the main conference, and three papers at the conference workshops. In addition, Adobe Research organized three workshops: Affective Content Analysis (AffCon)Content Authoring and Design (CAD), and Scientific Document Understanding (SDU), which received over 50 paper submissions collectively. Adobe Research also organized two shared tasks: Acronym Identification and  Acronym Disambiguation, which attracted 52 and 43 participants, respectively.  The results of shared tasks will be presented during the conference. 

Many of the accepted papers are the outcome of research internships. For those interested, please check out the Adobe Research Careers website to learn more about internships and full-time career opportunities.
