Announcing two new Weekly Remote Live Study Groups!
(1) The Deep Learning from the Foundations Study Group meets on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM Pacific Time.
The purpose of this study group is to review the lectures and material from the course Deep Learning From the Foundations also known as Fast.ai Course 2 v3, which launched on Friday, June 28th.
The first session, on Saturday June 29, will be devoted to a review of Practical Deep Learning for Coders (aka Fast.ai Course 1 v3).
Then, beginning on Saturday July 6, each weekly study group session will cover half a lesson of Deep Learning From the Foundations. The plan is to progress through the seven lessons over 14 weeks, finishing on Saturday October 5th.
The last five sessions, ending on Saturday November 9th, will be devoted to mini-presentations on papers or projects of interest from the community.
(2) The Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning Study Group meets on Saturdays from10:00 AM to 11:00 AM Pacific Time.
The purpose of this study group is to review the course Stanford CS224n: Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning, which ran during Winter quarter earlier this year; the lectures are available on YouTube.
The current plan is to progress through the 20 course lectures at the rate of one lecture per session, beginning Saturday June 29th, and ending Saturday November 9th.
Deriving maximum benefit from study groups such as these depends on your coming to each meeting prepared, having reviewed relevant lectures and materials beforehand, following up with practical work to deepen your understanding afterwards.
Study groups will meet weekly via live Zoom Videoconference, beginning Saturday June 29, 2019. They are hosted on TWiML & AI x fast.ai, courtesy of @sam (Sam Charrington). We will communicate on the TWiML Slack Group using channels #fast_ai_dl and #stanford_cs224n_group, respectively.
Here is the Current TWIMLAI study group schedule for both of the new study groups. All are welcome to participate!
