About the Series
This seminar series brings together academic and industrial data scientists to discuss advanced topics in machine learning.
Presented by the Vector Institute, the goal of the seminar series is to strengthen the machine learning community in Ontario.
Held from from noon to 2:00 p.m. approximately every other Thursday, talks will be evenly divided between international invited speakers, academic faculty and industry, and days focused on applications in fintech, medtech, and robotics.
The seminar series is intended for university faculty and graduate students in machine learning across computer science, ECE, statistics, mathematics, linguistics, and medicine, as well as PhD-level data scientists doing interesting applied research in the GTA.
A large emphasis will be placed on the social aspects of the gathering. The Toronto machine learning community will be stronger when we know each other and know what problems people are working on.
