Hey folks, I’m Arkar.
I am currently based in Yangon, Myanmar. Currently I am working as an independent contractor for building ML/DL solutions. I and my colleagues started a deep learning startup at MIT delta V which provided training and testing visual data for evaluating visual perception systems of self-driving cars. Unfortunately, we had to shut it down when we ran out of funds. Before that, I was a Master’s student at WPI, doing research on using DL systems in education settings.
I love contributing my DL/ML knowledge back to community and I have been holding AI discussion groups here in Yangon to promote students and professionals to engage in technical discussions and feedback sessions related to topics in ML/DL.
I want to use this course as a platform for educating students here in Yangon. I want them to understand the source code of how fastAI is written (which I personally like) and encourage them to take things apart, debug and experiment them on their own to understand DL/ML systems via programmatic implementations (rather than inundated with a lot of math equations)
