SheCanML – Empowering Young Women in Machine Learning

Loading Events

The Women in STEM group on New York University Abu Dhabi campus are holding their 9th annual High School Conference on April 21st. The weSTEM conference is a collaborative and interdisciplinary initiative aimed at fostering diversity and enhancing the presence of women in STEM fields within and beyond the UAE. Thier primary focus is on equipping high school girls with essential technical and interpersonal skills necessary for success in STEM careers.
The IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) affinity group in the UAE is hosting a workshop, called SheCanML, during the conference. Given the widespread usage of machine learning (ML) in our daily lives and its incorporation in various subfields within STEM, we aim to provide a fun and interactive introduction to ML for female high school students. Our goal is to engage participants in hands-on activities that will deepen their understanding of key concepts and empower them to train a simple ML model.
