The fact that we can ask these questions seriously shows we are making good progress on the course materials!
I guess we’ll compromise between the progressives and the conservatives and mix and match. Some people are getting bored with vision, but it’s worth doing a bit more. And a bit of early discussion and spreading out NLP will help people adapt to this new topic.
BTW I like the Francois Chollet book on Keras a lot. Eyrolles just got a whole batch of them, but they’re expensive.
Keras may not be the same set of classes we are using, but it’s Google’s simple wrapper for TensorFlow, widely employed, and the book is really nice, explaining the concepts of a lot of the material we are covering. Jeremy is in a hurry in his videos, and the book sort of fills in some of the holes. What can I say - I love Jeremy’s videos and the FastAI classes are great but I also like François’ book.
BTW, I just found an entertaining article, relevant to our current exercises, but using Keras …maybe you want to do something like this with FastAI.
