What we’re about

Machine Learning Tokyo (MLT) is an award-winning nonprofit organization 一般社団法人 based in Japan, operating globally and remotely. MLT is dedicated to democratizing Machine Learning through open education, open source and open science. We support a research- and engineering community of 10,000 members.

Open Education –  MLT held more than 300 AI workshops, study sessions, talks and hackathons with thousands of participants in Tokyo and with remote participants from all over the world. Our events are inclusive and with an open education mindset, individuals can attend all events free of charge.
Open Source – Several volunteer teams within the MLT community are working on Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning and Robotics projects, including substantial work that has been done in the field of AI for Social Good. All projects are hosted on the public Machine Learning Tokyo GitHub Organization; code bases and repositories are published as open source projects.
Open Science – MLT teams have published research papers at international ML conference workshops and we’re continuously collaborating with Universities and Research Institutes in Japan to support open science and researchers with diverse academic backgrounds, including the University of Tokyo, Tokyo Institute of Technology and RIKEN CBS. We organized lectures, bootcamps and workshops on Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Data Science.

MLT events are for community building and knowledge sharing. We politely ask that company representatives, recruiters and consultants looking to hire or sell their services do not participate in MLT activities or approach members in any form.

MLT promotes an inclusive environment that values integrity, openness and respect.
