Taiwan Meetup


(Sanyam Bhutani) #1

Hello Everyone!

I’ve had another awesome achievement thanks to Fast AI!
I got selected for Asia University’s Summer Exchange Scholarship for AI. I’ll be attending the AI Programme for 2 weeks in the Month of July.

It’d be great to meet other DL Enthusiasts over there.

Sanyam.

Congratulations, Sanyam. Greetings from Taipei, Taiwan!

Not sure if I can squeeze some time for a meetup because my wife and I have 4 kids ages from 0 to 7 to look after. :sweat_smile:

But still I am very happy to know your visit to Taiwan. Welcome and please enjoy.

Hi Sanyan,

If I am not mistaken, Asia University is located in the city of Taichung. I live close to Taipei(about 2 1/2 hrs drive, depending on transit). When does the program starts and ends. Let see if we can meet.

Cheers!

Thank you for the warm hello @harryh @chho6822.
The program is from 3rd July-13th July.

AU is in Tauchung city, but I’ll be landing at the Taipei Airport.
I’ll ping you one week before I reach, I’ll try to travel to Taipei on weekends if possible :slight_smile:

Best Regards,
Sanyam.

Glad that you and classmates were well accommodated! And also that the mild typhoon that crossed TW during your stay was only a minor scare.

Hope you consider the offer for full-time CS scholarship. Two years will be sufficient for you to learn well mandarin, help us to promote DL, and give it a try at Sun Moon Lake Swimming Carnival!!

Cheers!
