Welcome back! This is a continuation of last year's Fast.ai study group. New members are welcome to attend, but are encouraged to review the material from Part 1 to make sure they have experience with previously covered material.
Free and open to all.
In this study group, we will be working through the 2018 fast.ai deep learning MOOC: Cutting Edge Deep Learning For Coders, Part 2. For more information, visit the course's site here: https://course.fast.ai/part2.html
Each session we will use that week’s fast.ai lectures and course materials as a basis for discussion and learning. Everyone is invited to contribute their insights and questions.
Prior to each session, attendees are expected to have watched the lecture for that week and worked on course assignments. This group will assume familiarity with the material from fast.ai Part 1.
