I thought I would put together a list of the machine learning talks from ICML 2019 since I found they were kind of difficult to look through on facebook, and I figured I would share it here. There may be some minor errors in the listing also. I believe they are mostly available on the ICML website too, but I was just looking through the livestreams: . I already posted some of these over on /r/reinforcementlearning as well.
