We are excited to announce that the Data Science Hub is launching its first machine learning community of practice (ML CoP) event on November 9th from 12-1pm in the Discovery Building’s Orchard View Room (in-person and via Zoom).
This monthly recurring event — which we are calling ” ML+X ” — will feature a series of 10-minute lightning talks on applied ML work. It is our hope that this community event will encourage researchers to share their knowledge and resources so that we may all become better ML practitioners. To that end, each presentation will address a series of questions related to the ML methods employed in their work (e.g. how their model was selected over others, how their model was validated, three software/ML tools that were vital to the project, etc.).
Anyone who is applying machine learning in their work is welcome to present! To review the presentation format requirements and apply to present, please fill out this short google form by 11/01/21. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the event organizer — Chris Endemann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sign-up to join the ML CoP mailing list via this link . We will send a calendar invite to this group containing a zoom link for the meeting as well as a sign-up sheet to participate in-person. Please send an email to email@example.com if you have any trouble joining, and he will add you to the group manually.
Please share this event with any colleagues and students (not listed here) who may be interested in attending/presenting.
We look forward to seeing some of you there!

Climate Action Simulation Game for Educators
November 4th, 4:00 – 5:30 pm Central
As global leaders gather in Glasgow to reinvigorate their climate pledges during the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, you too can get a taste of the policy and diplomacy decisions involved in limiting global warming to no more than 1.5° C. Join us on November 4th for a highly interactive, role-playing game. You will negotiate a climate deal to address one of the greatest human and environmental challenges of this century, and you’ll walk away with the resources to bring this experience back to your own classroom.
