For a long time John Langford and others have presented about VW at the yearly NeurIPS and ICML conferences. This year was no different, apart from the fact that for the first time NeurIPS was completely online and remote. A benefit of this is that the complete workshop is now accessible online to anyone.

A huge thanks to everyone who presented, especially to Jacob Alber who organized the entire workshop.

The entire presentation is available here.
