# Invited Speakers
Marta is a senior research scientist at DeepMind where she has primarily worked on deep generative models and meta learning. As part of this research she has been involved in developing Generative Query Networks and led the work on Neural Processes. In addition to generative models her recent interests have expanded to multi-agent systems and game theory. Prior to DeepMind Marta obtained her PhD from Imperial College London, where she also worked on symbolic reinforcement learning.
Lukasz is a deep learning researcher whoworks on fundamental aspects of deep learning and naturallanguage processing. He has co-invented Transformers andother neural sequence models and co-authored the TensorFlowsystem and the Tensor2Tensor and Trax libraries. Before workingon machine learning, Lukasz was a tenured researcherat University Paris Diderot and worked on logic andautomata theory. He received his PhD from RWTH AachenUniversity in 2008 and his MSc from the University of Wroclaw, Poland.
Marta Kwiatkowska is a Professor of Computing Systems and Fellow of Trinity College, University of Oxford. She is known for fundamental contributions to the theory and practice of model checking for probabilistic systems, focusing on automated techniques for verification and synthesis from quantitative specifications. She led the development of the PRISM model checker, the leading software tool in the area and winner of the HVC Award 2016. Probabilistic model checking has been adopted in diverse fields, including distributed computing, wireless networks, security, robotics, healthcare, systems biology, DNA computing, and nanotechnology, with genuine flaws found and corrected in real-world protocols. Kwiatkowska is the first female winner of the Royal Society Milner Award, winner of the BCS Lovelace Medal, and was awarded an honorary doctorate from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. She won two ERC Advanced Grants, VERIWARE and FUN2MODEL, and is a co-investigator of the EPSRC Programme Grant on Mobile Autonomy. Kwiatkowska is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of ACM, EATCS, BCS and PTNO, and a Member of Academia Europea.
Rich Caruana is a Senior Principal Researcher at Microsoft. His research focus is on intelligible/transparent modeling and machine learning for medical decision-making. Before joining Microsoft, Rich was on the faculty at Cornell, at UCLA's Medical School, and at CMU's Center for Learning and Discovery. Rich's Ph.D. is from CMU, and his thesis on Multitask Learning helped create interest in the new subfield of Transfer Learning. Rich received an NSF CAREER Award in 2004 for Meta Clustering.
Daphne Koller is CEO and Founder of insitro, a machine-learning enabled drug discovery company. Daphne is also co-founder of Engageli, was the Rajeev Motwani Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, where she served on the faculty for 18 years, the co-CEO and President of Coursera, and the Chief Computing Officer of Calico, an Alphabet company in the healthcare space. She is the author of over 200 refereed publications appearing in venues such as Science, Cell, and Nature Genetics. Daphne was recognized as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2012. She received the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2004 and the ACM Prize in Computing in 2008. She was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering in 2011 and elected a fellow of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence in 2004, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2014, and the International Society of Computational Biology in 2017.
Yoshua Bengio is a Full Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research at Université de Montreal, as well as the Founder and Scientific Director of Mila and the Scientific Director of IVADO. Considered one of the world’s leaders in artificial intelligence and deep learning, he is the recipient of the 2018 A.M. Turing Award with Geoff Hinton and Yann LeCun, known as the Nobel prize of computing. He is a Fellow of both the Royal Society of London and Canada, an Officer of the Order of Canada, and a Canada CIFAR AI Chair.
# Call for Contributors
We are very excited to invite you to submit your proposals for contributed talks and posters for ML in PL ‘21 Conference!All accepted talks and posters will be presented during the Main Conference and their authors will receive a free ticket.
Please check deadline and all details on the dedicated Call for Contributors subpage.
# Women in ML in PL
At #MLinPL, we understand the importance of supporting historically underrepresented groups. That's why we are glad to present our new initiative: Women in ML in PL.
During Saturday and Sunday we will hold two events dedicated to empowering women in Machine Learning research:
• Workshop “Cracking the coding interview”
• A panel of female researchers working in natural language processing, bioinformatics and at the intersection of applied physics and machine learning.
More on each soon!
