MLCommons Science Working Group Invites Researchers to Run New Benchmarks
The MLCommons Science Working Group encourages and supports the curation of large-scale experimental and scientific datasets and the engineering of machine learning (ML) benchmarks operating on those datasets. Tirelessly working to advance ML and artificial intelligence (AI) within the research community, the Working Group has recently released four testing benchmarks focused on cloudmasking, geophysics, scanning transmission electron microscopes (STEMDL) and cancer distributed learning environments (CANDLE UNO).
