Abstract: The Women in Machine Learning (WiML) workshop started in 2006 as a way of creating connections within the small community of women working in machine learning in order to encourage mentorship, networking, and interchange of ideas. The workshop has attracted representatives from both academia and industry, whose talks showcase some of the cutting edge research being done by women. In addition to technical presentations and discussion, the workshop aims to incite debate on prospective research avenues and career choices for machine learning professionals. More information about WiML’s history and past events can be found at WiML workshop is overseen by the WiML Board of Directors, who select and support the organizing committee for each year’s workshop.
