WiML Virtual Social @ ICLR 2020
WiML is excited to announce a Virtual Social @ ICLR 2020 involving a Virtual Panel and a Mentoring Session. During the Virtual Panel, 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.
Date: Thursday, April 30th, 2020, 9.00am-11.00am Pacific Time.
Our 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)
The panel will be moderated by Sinead Williamson (Assistant Professor of Statistics, University of Texas at Austin).
