Inmar Givoni

I am a senior engineering manager at Uber ATG Toronto. We’re building self-driving vehicles using cutting-edge deep-learning models. In addition, I fairly regularly give presentations about machine learning, algorithms, big data, and their applications to high-school kids, university students, researchers, and non-technical audiences.  I also participate in various career panels and career mentoring events.  You are welcome to contact me if you are interested in something like that.

As a technical woman, I’m particularly interested in outreach activities for young women, encouraging them to choose technical career paths. For my volunteering and mentoring work I received the University of Toronto’s 2017 Arbor Award, and was recognized as one of the 2018 inaugural cohort of 50 inspiring Canadian women in STEM.

I like helping build communities, especially in Toronto. I am a co-organizer of the ML Ensemble and Canadian Tech @ Scale conferences.
