  7. SSI Fellowship Plans

  8. SSI Fellowship Plans Why I am applying to SSI Programme

    ‘22 1. Shared Interest for Sustainable Research Software Principles and Reproducible Science Practice • Being a SSI fellow will de fi nitely support me in disseminating these principles among researchers at the University 2. Join a community of peers with whom I wish to collaborate, exchange ideas, and to learn from.
  9. • Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning (PPML) technologies have the huge potential

    to be the 
 Data Science paradigm of the future • Joint e ff ort of Open Source & ML & Security Communities 
 • I wish to disseminate the knowledge about these new methods and technologies among researchers • Focus on Reproducibility of PPML work fl ows SSI Fellowship Plans What I would like to do
  10. SSI Fellowship Plans • Develop a workshop on Reproducible PPML

    • Increase visibility by writing blog posts and short tutorials • Eventually aiming at submitting the material as a proposal for a new Data Carpentry Curriculum gather.town • Run at least two data carpentry-style workshops on PPML • Pay for hosting and cloud computing to host and run teaching materials • (Ideally) Having funds for some travel costs & catering for attendees • (More realistically) 
 Purchasing professional equipment for recording (e.g. webcam) 
 Host the bootcamp on remote premises (e.g. gather.town)
  11. Thank you very much 
 for your kind attention Valerio
