Top Recent Machine Learning Papers

We have just created a new collection in Etymo (, called Favourite papers.

Papers in this collection are ordered by their total number of stars, which are the sum of the number of stars from our users and the number of tweet mentions from Twitter (we’ve filtered out most spam accounts / bots).

To star a paper, you can simply click the ☆ button.

When you star a paper in Etymo, you’re actually doing two distinct things:

  • Adding this paper to your personal Starred Papers collection for easier access.
  • Increasing the total number of stars for this paper.
