WeCREATE is a community built to inspire female students and young professionals, dispelling myths and highlighting the creative promise of AI and machine learning.
At its core, WeCREATE is a series of free, interactive engagement sessions aiming to encourage women to embrace creative careers in AI and machine learning.
WeCREATE is the brainchild of Prof. Mihaela van der Schaar, the University of Cambridge's John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, AI and Medicine at the University of Cambridge.
Created for women, open to all
The driving idea behind WeCREATE is that no-one should be discouraged from pursuing AI and machine learning.
Many of us have been told at some point that these areas are not for women, that they are dry and lack creativity, or that they don't offer a way to make an impact and change the world.
None of this is true, and we can prove it. We want to explode these myths in front of the largest, broadest possible audience. That's why, while our message is mainly for young women, all are welcome. All you need is curiosity and an open mind.
Whether you're a high school student wondering about your next big step into higher education, an undergraduate considering further study or career options outside academia, or a postgrad or professional looking for inspiration, we hope you'll join us.
Online engagement sessions with world-leading guests
We want to offer a space for women interested in AI and machine learning to engage directly with—and learn from—academics and professionals at the top of their fields who are making their mark on the world with creativity and a sense of purpose every day.
In these sessions, we will dispel STEM-related myths, introduce inspiring role models, and showcase projects that are creative and/or achieve social benefit across a wide variety of professional fields.
