Women in deep learning


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop theme:

Women are underrepresented in data science. This is even more true when focusing on the interface between mathematics and deep learning. This workshop aims to showcase some of the amazing work that women are doing in the mathematical foundation of deep learning, encouraging early career women in mathematical data science and inspiring them to consider a career in this exciting area of mathematics. This event is also meant as an opportunity for networking, for exchanging experiences and providing advice.

The workshop will feature a combination between long tutorial-like talks by prominent women in deep learning, short talks combined with posters by early career women and a panel discussion.

Deadline for applications: 22nd August 2021
