Muslims in ML

NeurIPS Workshop, 8 December 2020, Vancouver, Canada


Overview

Muslims In ML (MusIML) is an affinity workshop for the NeurIPS community.

We focus on both the potential for advancement and harm to muslims and those in muslim-majority countries who religiously identify, culturally associate, or are classified by proximity, as “muslim”.

The workshop will run on Tuesday, December 8 10:30AM - 1:30PM EST.

We will feature pre-recorded talks, with live Q/A sessions on Friday. This will be followed by a short panel discussion.
