The University of Maryland Center for Machine Learning invites graduate students and postdocs from underrepresented groups to apply to its Rising Stars in Machine Learning program. People who identify as women, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, LGBTQIA or living with disabilities are underrepresented in computer science and machine learning. The goal of this program is to support machine learning researchers from these underrepresented groups as they pursue new scientific discoveries and academic opportunities. Three winners will be selected to present their research as part of our virtual distinguished ML seminar series and will receive an honorarium payment.
For announcements regarding this program, signup for our email list. Rising Stars in Machine Learning is organized and led by assistant professor of computer science Soheil Feizi with the help of other CML faculty. Questions can be directed to ml at umd dot edu.
