Twitch Livestream for Learning fast.ai

Hi :wave: Join our fast.ai learning stream on twitch.tv:

@hiimnick and I are going through the fast.ai course and building projects based on what we’re learning in the course. On Mondays we watch and discuss lectures and on Thursdays we build projects based on the previous lecture.

This is not a traditional study group. Everyone is welcome to drop by as much as they want to and participate through our twitch stream. We’re both programmers, but we both don’t know fast.ai yet, so expect debugging, detours, and projects. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • Watch: Mondays, US 12:00PM EST / EU 17:00PM CEST: Watching, reading, and discussing the lessons
  • Build: Fridays, US 12:00PM EST / EU 17:00PM CEST: Building projects based on learned concepts

If you missed out on one of the streams, you can re-watch them on our YouTube account:

Upvote or spread the word if you like this idea, the bigger our twitch stream learning group gets, the more fun we’ll have together :slight_smile:

Thanks for everyone who joined in yesterday (and for letting us know that my audio was off :sweat_smile:) We’re putting timestamps on our previous streams right now and gonna have them up on YouTube in a few days.

Looking forward to building out our first applications from the pickled models on Thursday! Hope to see you around : )

We’re going live again in 30 minutes at 11AM EST / 5PM CET: https://www.twitch.tv/nickandmartinlearnstuff/

Today we’re going to listen through the second part of Lesson 3 together, which corresponds to the notebook named 04_mnist_basics.ipynb.

Join us if you want to :slight_smile:


We also managed to upload a couple of our previous streams to the YouTube channel and added nice timestamps with emojis :beetle::jigsaw::speech_balloon::tv::rofl: to make it easier to skip to the parts that might interest you. Check it out:

We’re going live again in ~40 minutes at 11AM EST / 5PM CET!

Today we’re going to continue to read over Lesson 3, starting at SGD, so we’re still in the notebook named 04_mnist_basics.ipynb . We’re going to keep reading the lessons together as we did in our last stream, and consult the video only if we want some additional clarification. Seemed like more fun like this :slight_smile:

Hope to see you there!

Next livestream starts in 30 minutes! We’ll learn more about SGD by hacking the scraps of theoretical knowledge we gained last time onto the MNIST Loss Function, and probably do a little recap of SGD on the way. Here’s a link to the relevant section in the notebook: 04_mnist_basics.ipynb (you can link to headers in a notebook, wow! :star_struck: )

Join us at 11AM EST / 5PM CET:

Next livestream starts in 30 minutes! We’ll finally finish the #04 notebook: 04_mnist_basics.ipynb -- Putting it all Together doing a bit of recap and wrapping it up.

Join us at 11AM EST / 5PM CET!

The next livestream starts in 30 minutes! Today we’re gonna hop back into the first notebook 01_intro.ipynb and attempt to figure out the differences between:

  • fine_tune()
  • fit_one_cycle()
  • fit()
    By just running all of them as often as possible and making up weird theories of why things happen. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: We’re probably also gonna look into the docs, though.
    Join us at 11AM EST / 5PM CET!

30 minutes to our next live stream! Today we go over Chapter 05_pet_breeds and see what of the content we can apply to our own dog breed classifier that we built back in Episode 2.

Lots to learn - Join us at 11AM EST / 5PM CET!. Pets are welcome, too :bear::cat::dog::koala: !

30 minutes to our next live stream! Today we keep working on Chapter 05_pet_breeds and continue to apply the content to our ancient history dog breed classifier that we built back in Episode 2.

Join us in 30 minutes on our next live stream! It’s Thanksgiving in the US :turkey:!

For today’s stream we’re gonna build a turkey :turkey: vs. not-turkey :hotdog: classifier:
