Our researchers at Priberam Labs have actively participated in the organization of LxMLS, the Lisbon Machine Learning School. LxMLS is an annual summer school, held since 2011, dedicated to the topics of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. It has been co-organized by Instituto Superior Técnico, Instituto de Telecomunicações, and the Spoken Language Systems Lab - L2F of INESC-ID.
Every year, LxMLS has among its set of lecturers the top researchers in the field, and counts with more than 100 participants worldwide. If you're curious, you can find here videos of some of the past lectures. Since the first edition, the school has had the support of Google (the main sponsor) and has also been sponsored by Priberam.
LxMLS is directed at nearly-graduated Master's students, early-stage PhD students, and people from the industry. It includes tutorials on Machine Learning and its applications in Natural Language Processing, as well as hands-on computer sessions. (If you were wondering, “Lx” is a common abbreviation of “Lisbon”.)
