FORMAT and instructions

The seminars will take place in Zoom Webinar; some may be recorded and live-streamed to YouTube.

Each seminar typically follows one of these formats:

  • 40-min talk, followed by 20-min Q&A and moderated chat on the speaker's journey in ML and research process, then an optional 15-min social

  • Rising Star Spotlights: Two talks of 30 mins each, including Q&A, then an optional 15-min social

  • Industry Spotlights: Two talks of 20 mins each, then a 30-min panel and Q&A with speakers

Our hope is that the optional social helps participants meet new people working in similar research areas, while the panel helps participants learn about what it's like to work in trustworthy ML in industry.
