After organizing 8 #AutoML workshops, we think it is time to have the first #AutoML conference as a place to bring the community together and a collaborative conference with emphasizing reproducibility and open source. Contact us if you would like to be involved!

We welcome Teresa Scheidt as a visiting research student for a summer internship @UniSiegen. She will analyze how the performance of #recsys and #MachineLearning algorithms changes over time.

7 days left to apply for one of two open positions in Siegen, Germany: #PhD or #Postdoc in #AutoML and/or #RecSys for 3+1 years; salary around €50k-€70k p.a., and plenty of budget for travel and equipment. #career #jobs #openpositions #RS_c_jobs

Our paper on "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Graphical User Interfaces for Recommender Systems" was accepted @UMAPconf . We found that a good #GUI may increase CTR of #RecSys by up to 66%. Pre-print:!AtfAgPR4VDcEu5MzEhBNfTy3cdkv0A?e=22cN67 #RS_c #UX #uxdesign #HCI

Do you want to learn more about #AutoML? Our new MOOC on AutoML is live at @KICampus. In 65 videos with overall 34h, we cover #HPO, #NAS, #BO, #EAs and #meta-learning for #AutoML. Quizzes and coding exercises allow you to deepen your expertise. Join us:
