19:00 – Introduction by ManoMano & the Paris WiMLDS team
19:25 – “Federated Learning: Learn from everyone without learning about anyone” by Maribeth Rauh, Research Engineer @ Deep Mind & Silvia Vinyes, Software Engineer @ Google
Abstract: Federated Learning is a machine learning technique for training and evaluating models without any sensitive data leaving a user’s device. In this talk, we will walk through how this technique works, as well as provide resources for participants to dive deeper.
19:50 – “Machine Learning for personalised healthcare: a human-centred approach” by Danielle Belgrave, Principal Researcher @ Microsoft Research Cambridge
Abstract: Machine learning advances are opening new routes to more precise healthcare, from the discovery of disease subtypes for stratified interventions to the development of personalised interactions supporting self-care between clinic visits. This offers an exciting opportunity for machine learning techniques to impact healthcare in a meaningful way. In this talk, I will present recent work on probabilistic graphical modelling frameworks to enable a more personalised approach to healthcare, whereby information can be aggregated from multiple sources within a unified modelling framework. The work presented will be motivated within the clinical contexts of asthma, allergic diseases and mental health.
20:15 – “Cyberactivism : How to fix biases” by Fanchon Mayaudon-Courtel, Founder of SEO Lesbienne
Abstract : Coming soon
20:45 – Networking / Cocktail
