Today I learned that Sylvain (@sgugger) s leaving fast.ai:
This comes as a surprise to me, and I bet to many members of the fast.ai community. When I think of fast.ai, I think of Jeremy, Rachel, and Sylvain, so for him to leave really feels like an integral part of fast.ai is leaving. Nevertheless, I am excited to hear you are going to work at Huggingface, a great deep learning company!
I would like to say thank you for your contributions to the fast.ai community. You have contributed so much. Here are some of the major contributions I am very grateful for:
- Co-designing and contributing the two versions of the fastai library, which has made deep learning accessible to so many people
- Helping with the two iterations of the MOOC and helping to answer all of our questions during the course
- Co-writing the upcoming fastai book, which I am sure will help many people around the world!
Thank you for all of your contributions, and thank you for taking the time to answer all of our questions! You have played an important role in all of our deep learning journeys!
Good luck at Huggingface !
