Questions after the first lesson


I’ve just finished Lesson 1 of Part 1 and so far, I’m enjoying the course and learning a lot. I have a few questions:

  1. Is this the homework?:

    • Run this notebook using ResNet50
    • Create own image dataset using a guide by T.A. Francesco
  2. I was very excited when he mentioned people who got into the deep learning industry by actively following through the Fast.AI content. I’m currently a 2nd year CS undergrad. I have learned some things on my own but definitely not to this extent and that’s why I know I should be here. However, I got rejected from various residency programs (Uber, Google, Shell, FCAI) not too long ago and been constantly getting rejections from all of the internships, co-ops and entry-level positions that I’ve been applying to. How did those people make it? Just following through Fast.AI? Side projects? How do we show that we finished through the Fast.AI content? I had no luck even getting a basic entry-level position and I’ve been trying for a long time. Really appreciate any type of input on this.

  3. I remember reading some things about doing a fellowship at Fast.AI. What exactly is the nature of that program? Does it still run? Is it remote?

Thank you

Are you doing v3 of the course, or it is the 2019 version?

I’m going through the v3 version
