Machine learning has achieved considerable successes in recent years, but this success often relies on human experts, who construct appropriate features, design learning architectures, set their hyperparameters, and develop new learning algorithms. Driven by the demand for off-the-shelf machine learning methods from an ever-growing community, the research area of AutoML targets the progressive automation of machine learning aiming to make effective methods available to everyone. Hence, the workshop targets a broad audience ranging from core machine learning researchers in different fields of ML connected to AutoML, such as neural architecture search, hyperparameter optimization, meta-learning, and learning to learn, to domain experts aiming to apply machine learning to new types of problems.

Keynote Speakers

  • Mihaela van der Schaar (John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Medicine at the University of Cambridge and Chancellor's Professor at UCLA)
  • Alex Smola (Director, Amazon Web Services)
  • Neil Lawrence (DeepMind Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Cambridge and visiting Professor at the University of Sheffield)

Remark on COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 the workshop will be completely virtual. All keynote talks and contributed talks will be streamed and followed by a live Q&A session. Each accepted paper has a one-minute spotlight presentation which will be streamed, too. In additional, there will be a Zoom session for each accepted paper during one of the two poster sessions to ask questions to the authors and discuss their work. The final panel discussion will also be streamed live.

We will post links to the individual events on the day of the workshop.
