Why should I attend the Toronto Machine Learning Society (TMLS) 2023 Annual Conference & Expo:

Developments in the field are happening fast: For practitioners, it's important to stay on top of the latest advances; for business leaders, the implementation of new technology brings specific challenges.

The goal of TMLS is to empower data practitioners, academics, engineers, and business leaders with direct contact to the people that matter most, and the practical information to help advance your projects. For data practitioners, you'll hear how to cut through the noise and find innovative solutions to technical challenges, learning from workshops, case studies, and P2P interactions. Business leaders will learn from the experience of those who have successfully implemented ML/AI and actively manage data teams.

Seminar series content will be practical, non-sponsored, and tailored to our ML ecosystem. TMLS is not a sales pitch - it's a connection to a deep community that is committed to advancing ML/AI and to create and deliver value and exciting careers for Businesses and Individuals.

We're committed to helping you get the most out of the TMLS.

Joining together under one roof will be:

  • Machine Learning/deep learning PhDs and researchers
  • C-level business leaders
  • Industry experts
  • Data Engineers, Machine Learning Engineers
  • Enterprise innovation labs seeking to grow their teams
