Thanks for posting @sermakarevich! :slight_smile:

I am guessing you don’t have too many applications from Europe :sleeping:


(Jeremy Howard) #4

Actually we have a lot! Lots of very late nights for those folks :slight_smile:


(James Dietle) #5

Is there a date we should start anticipating acceptance emails? Last time it was about a month out.

EDIT: Tomorrow (Feb 28) is last day to apply! Get to it!


(Saurabh Jha) #6

Yes eagerly waiting for the email to know on acceptance of Part 2.
Fingers crossed.


(Tanat Tonguthaisri) #7

How about applications from Southeast Asia?

Can we stack up to the European folks? :smiley:


(sergii makarevych) #8

I assume there is no discrimination of Southeast Asia :slight_smile: Feel free to apply. It might be the case that it is hard to run a course with 100K of international fellow students, but thats another story )


(James Requa) #9

Looking forward to it, hope to be accepted :slight_smile:


(Aditya) #11

Realising how tough it will be to decide who will go in and who will not…


(Phani Srikanth) #12

Fingers crossed. Hoping to get accepted. :slight_smile:
All the best to everyone!


(Emil) #13

What is the time zone of the deadline date?
I really hope it’s PST and not UTC, because I’ve got carried away with the part 1 and submitted the application at 11:57 PM PST.


(Walter Vanzella) #14

Argh…, I noticed the new course today. I have 12 hours of delay!! I am out, unless some miracle :grimacing:


(James Dietle) #16

Apply anyway. Whats the worst that happens… you have to wait 12 more weeks for some videos?

I believe in you


(S.Mahadevan) #17

When do we know whether we are selected or not?


(Vikas Bahirwani) #18

Given the number of applications, I am assuming it might take at least 1 week. Though I am more interested in the criteria they use for selection.


(Alex) #19

There probably stack of NLP RNN’s along with Wasserstein GAN’s taking input from hidden space. GANs would draw image
If mean inception score is good enough - application accepted :wink::wink::wink:


(Vikas Bahirwani) #20

Hahahahaha nice !!! Good one pal


(Walter Vanzella) #21

Yes, lets be optimistic! Would be great to be able to attend in ‘real-time’, this course is incredibly useful.


(Vikas Bahirwani) #22

Completely agreed.
