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. We use the Icebreaker.video platform with games like speed networking, small-group discussions, Clubhouse-style sharing, etc. At the end of this page are some games we've played in the past, to give you an idea. Note that Icebreaker requires signing into Google, and access to your camera and microphone.

Games we've played in the past:
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?
