Event description
It’s nearing the end of 2019, and we’d like to host a celebratory event for members of our community!

It’s nearing the end of 2019, and we’d like to host a celebratory event for members of our community!

We’d like to facilitate an evening of fun, networking, learning, gifts and prizes.

Agenda

5:30 - 6:15, arrivals and socializing, snacks

6:15-6:30, welcome and lightning talks (limited space)

6:30 - 7:15, trivia (including one break)

7:15 - 8:00, more socializing, more snacks

8:00 - 8:30, prizes for trivia winners, gift exchange, and raffle

Lightning Talks

There will be a limited time available for lightning talks, essentially you'd have 1-min to talk about whatever ML related thing you want (looking for a job, looking to hire, looking for people to do projects with, talking about your research etc). This will be first-come-first-serve, so let us know as soon as you arrive, if you are interested

Trivia

This part of the evening will feature a series of questions about machine learning (hint: questions are on the more fun/silly side of things than serious). You will participate in the trivia in groups of 3-4. The groups are formed randomly at the beginning but will have an opportunity to change groups in a break in the middle. The topics are:

  • Machine Learning Personalities (celebs and their social media)
  • AISC activities (resource: https://aisc.ai.science/)
  • High level ML knowledge

Trivia Prizes

Prizes for the winning teams include google home mini, books, and more

ps. we are working on getting more sponsors so that we can provide even better prizes

pps. if your company wants to sponsor this event, please let us know (events@ai.science)

Raffle and Gift Exchange

Entry to this event is by donation and the money collected will be used to provide gifts for the participants through a random draw. You qualify for 1 raffle ticket per $5 you donate. At the event, you can purchase more raffle tickets to increase your chances of winning a gift.

You are also encouraged to bring a small gift ($10-$20); you will get 2 extra raffle tickets per gift you bring. Hint: the nerdier the better!

Special thanks to our great sponsors for this event: CoreHR, and City of Toronto

We are looking for more sponsors for this event; if your company wants to sponsor, please let us know (events@ai.science)
