About this Event

Event and livestreaming details

If you are an AISC member, please use your discount code. Please choose the "Presenter" ticket (with the same discount code) if you plan to speak at the session.

Do you have a paper you'd like to discuss at AISC? Do you want to be entered to win a up to an 80% discount for a future workshop with Aggregate Intellect? If you've answered yes to the above, then you should participate in AISC Abstract Night!

What is AISC Abstract Night?

AISC Abstract Night is an AISC event where participants volunteer to talk about their favourite machine learning paper that they think would be interesting to discuss at a future AISC session. Those participants whose papers are selected to be presented at a later AISC session will enter a draw to win up to an 80% discount for future workshops.

We'll also be having a social as part of AISC Abstract Night!

What's the process?

1. Choose a machine learning paper (or a few) that you find interesting, and simply would like to learn more about!

2. Suggest that paper/those papers in the #papers-and-code channel on Slack, and include a one-liner about why it's interesting. Or, simply share this info upon registration. Note that suggesting a paper doesn't necessarily mean you have to present it later, it's just a way for you to announce that you like that paper.

3. Comment on your message in #papers-and-code, to let us know that you intent to talk about that paper at the session.

4. Attend the AISC session on June 20th, and talk about your paper(s) for up to 5 minutes. If you're unsure about what to talk about, feel free to talk about the abstract, and a short conclusion on why you think the paper is interesting.

Why?

At AISC we're looking for a new way to source papers for our sessions. Why not ask our community of talented machine learning practitioners and enthusiasts to help us with that?

Do I need to be an expert to suggest a paper?

Absolutely not! This session is meant to be informal and fun. Even if you aren't sure if a paper is "good" or "novel", and even if it isn't in your area of expertise, we encourage you to suggest it and share it with the community.

Do I need to present my paper if it's selected for a future AISC session?

Not unless you want to! If your paper is selected to be discussed at a future AISC session, we'll go through our usual process of sourcing speakers and facilitators.

Do I need to be at the session in person in order to talk about a paper?

Nope, we will make sure the session is interactive for those who are remote, as well, so everyone can feel free to talk about a paper.

Please note: If you arrive late the doors will be closed and someone will need to come get you. Message us on Slack (#center_circle channel) if you're stuck downstairs. We won't be checking Slack after the circles end (6:15), so please try your best to be there before that.
