Supporting women in machine learning

Since our first workshop in 2006, WiML has been creating opportunities for women in machine learning to present and promote their research.

Mission

Our goal 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, and increase the impact of women in machine learning. Toward this goal, we create opportunities for women to engage in substantive technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment. We also work to increase awareness and appreciation of the achievements of women in machine learning. Our programs help women build their technical confidence and our publicity efforts help ensure that women in machine learning and their achievements are known in the community.

    2011 WiML Workshop participant

    “I had never attended NIPS before so meeting people the first day through WiML made the rest of the conference less intimidating. It was comforting having familiar faces in the crowd, especially other students who often looked as lost as I did. By the end of the conference I had made a number of WiML friends who I hope to see again at future NIPS.”

Projects

We work to increase awareness and appreciation of the achievements 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.
