Request for literature podcast by Jeremy! 😸

Hi! Thanks so much for these great courses! I’ve just finished my first pass of parts 1 and 2, and will be going back through the material at least once or twice!

I was wondering, would @jeremy consider doing a regular podcast of his literature review, such as the one at the start of Lesson 11? :smile_cat: Some reasons why this would be awesome:

  • Jeremy is a great presenter (obviously).
  • He has an amazing “BS” filter and is able to quickly zoom in on the parts that matter.
  • It would greatly pre-process the # of papers to go through; I personally might have time for 1-2 papers a week, certainly not keeping up with the whole arxiv ML output.
  • It would really help people to get better at reading papers, because they could go over the paper already knowing what it says, which Jeremy recommended several times.

I know @jeremy and @rachel already have so many things on their plate, but anyway, I thought I would pitch the idea!

Cheers

Thanks! I think it’s a nice idea. We’ll be re-doing part 1 in a couple of months, so will be updating some research suggestions then. The idea of a ‘papers podcast’ is interesting, although it might not happen until we’ve gone through parts 1 and 2 again and have enough folks finish them that there’s a larger group of people interested.

There’s a great blog here: https://blog.acolyer.org/ . Not just DL, but the papers are all interesting (IMHO).

That’s great news! Thanks for the reply, and for the excellent link!

Shameless self plug. I maintain a blog where I talk about/explain very recent DL papers. https://medium.com/@harshsayshi

I’m listening to Pedro Domingos’ The Master Algorithm https://mobile.audible.com/pd/Science-Technology/The-Master-Algorithm-Audiobook/B014X1DS8W

It’s very good!

Hi @jeremy! Are you still considering a literature review podcast after parts 1 and 2? :crossed_fingers:t4:

Reviving this idea, subliminal messaging for jeremy in 2019 :smile_cat:

@msp
Francisco (@lesscomfortable) and I have started a “paper discussion” themed blog series.

Although I’m pretty sure it won’t be remotely as great as Jeremy’s presentations (speaking for myself), but I’d definitely invite any feedback for my posts both for what and how much I cover, we’re trying to cover the overview of papers (for me: its in no fixed order).

Francisco’s blog and (probably) worse of the two my blog series

Maybe 2020 is the year, who knows :grin:
