My reason for it was to have something like a software development team. Even if everyone is working on their separate task, we would all eventually become experts in a specific part of the work we are doing. We can then share that knowledge as we continue to develop, and ask questions to the group as needed.
The meeting would be to help facilitate this sharing of knowledge.
Any news on this? I’d really like to get involved as I feel this is in an early enough stage to help the fast.ai team with significant contributions. If there is still enough interest I’d be willing to set up a dedicated Slack channel.
@jeremy is it possible to get these patches merged in? Thanks!
@marii would you be willing to help organize regular meetings on this? On days I am not traveling, I can commit to attending at 6pm pst every monday over zoom. I have a paid account and believe I can host.
That sounds like a good idea. I’ve got a recurring zoom meeting scheduled for 6pm. I don’t know if I need to be present, we’ll need to test it. It’s set for 6pm - 7:30pm but I should be able to extend the session if we think it’ll take longer.
We should set up a public google calendar that people can add to their calendars. This will make it easy to update the meeting details.
Here is the invitation:

I’m realizing the latest version I pushed on course-v3 to be fully compatible with the 0.4 release never got converted to harebrain. Will fix that today, which may render some of those fixes irrelevant (and may also create new problems).
I’ll also push in harebrain the unstable version that is compatible with the nightlies (currently broken by two blocking bugs on S4TF).
Interesting meeting yesterday. Didn’t realize the name changed from harebrain to swiftai (https://github.com/fastai/swiftai); I like it. It was just @fkautz and I this time. This may be a good way for the fastai community to organize itself and support SwiftAI’s development.
Looks like we’re moving towards weekly meetings for each level of ‘differentiable programming’ abstraction: SwiftAI → S4TF → MLIR.
