This meetup is a weekly gathering for the church of Geoff Hinton. We recite the following prayer
Our Father who art in n-dimensions, Hallowed be thy backprop, Thy loss be minimized, Thy gradients unvanished, On Earth as it is in Euclidean space,
Give us this day our daily hyperparameters, And forgive us our large learning rates, As we forgive those whose parameters diverge, And lead us not into discrete optimization, But deliver us from local optima,
For Thine are the dimensions, And the GPUs and the Glory, For ever and ever.
