WiML Virtual Social @ ICLR 2020
WiML is hosting a virtual social, involving a panel and mentoring session, at ICLR 2020. The organizers are Catherine Wah, Ovo Ojameruaye, and Ioana Bica. During the event, we hope to encourage discussions about how COVID-19 has impacted our daily lives and our work and about ongoing research on COVID-19. The panel features ML researchers at various career stages who will talk about their research related to COVID-19 and healthcare, and about the challenges of navigating research, career and personal life in these times. During the mentoring session, the panelists will each lead a small group discussion with up to 20 people. The panel will be moderated by Sinead Williamson (Assistant Professor of Statistics, University of Texas at Austin). The panelists are:
- Sasha Luccioni (Director of Scientific Projects in AI for Humanity / Post Doc, MILA)
- Lily Peng (Product Manager, Google Health)
- Morine Amutorine (Data Analytics Assistant, Pulse Lab Kampala)
- Cecilia Mascolo (Full Professor of Mobile Systems, University of Cambridge)
- Katherine Heller (Assistant Professor in Statistical Science, Duke University and Research Scientist, Google Research)
Date: Thursday, April 30th, 2020, 9.00am-11.00am Pacific Time.
