We are excited to announce the next talk evening with three insightful talks:
Empowering the Future: Girl's Day in Germany by Öykü Gümüş. In her talk, Öykü will share her experience organizing Girls' Day events and her insights on empowering young women and teenage girls to pursue careers in tech.
Developing a Large-scale Creative Commons Dataset for Image by Sharon Grundmann. Sharon will discuss the challenges of training foundation models on copyrighted content and present her solution to this problem: building a large-scale dataset of Creative Commons licensed images. She will also dive into the challenges and how she leverages Fondant, an open-source framework that democratizes data preparation for foundation models, to realize this.
The Tech Talk will be led by a member of the PyLadies Berlin community. The topic of the talk will be announced closer to the event.
