Event description

Description

The Vector Institute is pleased to invite ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP) attendees, as well as members of the machine learning research community, to a half-day workshop on systems for machine learning research. The workshop will be hosted in the Auditorium of the MaRS Building in Toronto on Saturday October 26th, a day ahead of SOSP 2019 at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville.

Established just two years ago, Vector is a Toronto-based research institute that has grown rapidly into a community of about 400 machine and deep learning researchers from around the world. With SOSP 2019 and its workshop on AI Systems taking place a few hours away from Toronto, Vector’s Workshop on Machine Learning Systems is an opportunity to meet potential collaborators and build ties between the Toronto-based machine learning community and attendees from around the world travelling to SOSP 2019.

New machine learning models and algorithms are being developed at a rapid pace, yet they are unable to attain their full potential without well-designed systems. At this workshop, you will hear talks from leading systems researchers and have the opportunity to present and view posters from researchers in both fields. You will have the chance to connect with one another and inform the advancement of these two interdependent fields.

Lunch and light refreshments will be served during the workshop.

Bus transportation will be provided for all event participants to Deerhurst Resort from Vector. Should you require return transportation, the registration form will prompt you for this information. For those traveling to SOSP 2019, a boxed dinner will be provided.
