Community Hangout

Periodically, we will have casual events for the community to come together in a relaxed setting and connect with other people working in trustworthy machine learning.

The first such event takes place on Thursday, March 18, 2021, 12pm to 1pm ET. We'll have activities like speed networking, games, discussions, etc.

Join us in Zoom ( at 12pm. From Zoom, once we've assembled critical mass, we'll move to the Icebreaker platform ( where we have several games planned. Note that Icebreaker requires signing into Google, and access to your camera and microphone.

Here is some more information on each of the Icebreaker games:

Game #1 is an icebreaker game. You’ll be randomly paired with another participant to get to know each other. You can use these questions to get started, or ignore them and talk about anything you like!

  • Where are you joining from?

  • What were you doing immediately before this?

Game #2 is a small-group discussion with 2-5 people, on the topic of recommendations and advice. The discussion topics are:

  • What is one talk/textbook you would recommend?

  • What do you wish you had been told when you started your last program/job/project?

For Game #3, you’re on stage! You have 4 mins to tell everyone in this event what you are currently working on in trustworthy ML.

Finally, Game #4 is another small-group discussion with 2-5 people on the topic of interesting research. The discussion topics are:

  • What is a paper you are currently reading?

  • What do you think the landscape of trustworthy ML will look like in 5 years?
