WiMLDS's mission is to support and promote women and gender minorities who are practicing, studying or are interested in the fields of machine learning and data science. We create opportunities for members to engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment by hosting talks by women and gender minority individuals working in data science or machine learning, technical workshops, networking events and hackathons. We are inclusive to anyone who supports our cause regardless of gender identity or technical background. However, in support of our mission, priority for certain events and opportunities will be given to women and gender minority members.
For our second event, we will be learning from hands-on tutorials! Several volunteers from our chapter will be teaching groups of us how to accomplish a specific DS/ML task from start to finish.
There will be several tutorials happening at once and so everyone can pick something that they are specifically interested in learning about! I will add more details to this page as we finalize the tutorials. If you would like to lead a tutorial, fill out this form https://forms.gle/ivEu3MzedBoKoiB88 !
The tutorials will last for 45 minutes and each attendee will be able to attend two tutorials (one during the first session and one during the second session).
6:00 -- Event starts with introductions and updates
6:15-7:00pm -- Session 1: Several tutorials will be running and each attendee will pick which tutorial to attend.
7:00-7:15pm -- Break and food and drinks
7:15-8:00pm -- Session 2: Several tutorials will be running and each attendee will pick which tutorial to attend.
8:00-8:30 -- Mingling and continue munching food and drinks
We are being generously hosted by EF Education First for this meetup!
