Abstract:

WiML’s purpose is to enhance the experience of women in machine learning. Our flagship event is the annual Women in Machine Learning (WiML) Workshop, typically co-located with NeurIPS. We also organize an “un-workshop” at ICML, as well as small events at other machine learning conferences such as AISTATS, ICLR, etc.

Our mission is to enhance the experience of women in machine learning, and thereby

Increase the number of women in machine learning
Help women in machine learning succeed professionally
Increase the impact of women in machine learning in the community

Toward this goal, we create opportunities for women to engage in substantive technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment (e.g. annual workshop, small events, mentoring program). We also work to increase awareness and appreciation of the achievements of women in machine learning (e.g. directory and profiles of women in machine learning). Our programs help women build their technical confidence and their voice, and our publicity efforts help ensure that women in machine learning and their achievements are known in the community.

Chat is not available.
