Save the date: Midwest Machine Learning Symposium (MMLS) June 6-7

See more information at the MMLS 2019 website

The Midwest Machine Learning Symposium 2019 (MMLS’19) is being organized by Dimitris Papailiopoulos and Yingyu Liang at UW-Madison, together with colleagues Laura Balzano from U. Michigan, Abhishek Gupta from OSU, Steve Hanneke from TTIC, and Niao He from UIUC.

It aims to convene regional machine learning researchers for stimulating discussions and debates, to foster cross-institutional collaboration, and to showcase the collective talent of ML researchers at all career stages. The event combines individual research pursuits to form a broader perspective and helps to sustain a thriving ML community in the Midwest.
