Empowering and engaging: Borealis AI and the Women in Machine Learning (WiML) Workshop at NeurIPS Conference
The field of ML is expanding rapidly. Demand for ML researchers has never been higher. Yet female researchers still only represent a small percentage of the researchers in the field. If we want ML to remain a ‘force for good’ in society, this must change.
At Borealis AI, we firmly believe that the development of responsible ML requires diverse views, research and talent. And we are committed to encouraging greater diversity and inclusion in our actions, our research and our collaborative partnerships.
That is why Borealis AI is proud to support the 2021 Women in Machine Learning (WiML) Workshop. This important event gives female-identified faculty, research scientists, and graduate students in the machine learning community an opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other. In doing so, WiML is on a mission to increase gender diversity in ML, help women-identified individuals in ML to succeed professionally, and increase their impact within their communities.
“At Borealis AI, we are committed to empowering and engaging female-identified researchers in the field of ML,”
noted Dr. Eirene Seiradaki, Director of Research Partnerships at Borealis AI.
“Alongside our range of other diversity and inclusion initiatives, we hope our support of the 2021 WiML Workshop at NeurIPS provides those researchers – and those aspiring to join the field of ML – with the role models, ideas and inspiration to drive their career in ML forward.”
Hosted virtually within the 2021 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS), this year’s event builds on 15 years of programs designed around substantive technical and professional conversations held within positive, supportive environments.
