Trigger questions about Machine Learning


Interested in a job in data science? Or the emergence of MLOps? What about ethics and reproducibility? This is your chance to learn more and leverage on the extensive industrial and academic expertise of three Italian experts in Machine learning: Paolo Testa (Senior Data Scientist @ Nexi), Alberto Massidda (ML Advocate @ Sourcesense), and Azzurra Ragone (Branch Manager @ BurdaForward Italia) are inviting you to "trigger" the discussion on all things connected to Machine learning. The panel is moderated by our program committee member Simone Scardapane (Assistant Professor @ Sapienza).
