Timişoara Machine Learning Workshop

23 February 2019, Timişoara, Romania

@Politehnica University of Timişoara


Timişoara Machine Learning Workshop (TMLW) is a one-day workshop aimed to raise awareness on the potential of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence, and popularise the topics among students and practitioners. TMLW is the first workshop in the series of workshops organised by the Eastern European Machine Learning (EEML) team, as satellite events to EEML summer school.

The workshop is organised in collaboration with Politehnica University of Timişoara (UPT). With this occasion, UPT will launch their Master's program on ML, starting September 2019.


TMLW is open to everyone and requires (free) registration in advance. You must bring your own laptop for the practical session. You only need Google Chrome and a gmail account (the computation happens in the cloud, through Colab). All the talks will be in English.

Please express your interest in attending the workshop before 1 February 2019, by filling in the Registration form (in English).

You will receive a notification of participation by 14 February 2019. Participation is subject to availability, given the limited capacity of the venue.
