In this talk evening, together with PyLadies Berlin we will have the following very insightful talks for you:

Öykü Gümüş - Empowering the Future: Girl's Day in Germany
Öykü is a software engineer with a heart for community involvement. Recognizing the importance of representation, she organized Girls' Day events two years in a row, planning the next one, and mentoring through Django Girls. As a member of the PyLadies Berlin community, Öykü collaborates with fellow enthusiasts to promote a welcoming space for everyone interested in programming. While she enjoys her own journey in tech, she finds equal joy in helping young women and teenage girls discover their own paths in the industry.

Sharon Grundmann - Developing a Large-scale Creative Commons Dataset for Image
In January 2023, Getty Images sued Stability AI for training Stable Diffusion on over 12 million of their copyrighted images. This is a recurrent problem with foundation models which are trained on vast image datasets from the Internet, which often include copyrighted content.

In this talk, we will present our solution to this problem – building a large-scale dataset of Creative Commons licensed images. We will dive into the challenges and how we leverage Fondant, an open-source framework that democratises data preparation for foundation models, to realise this.
