Next Meetup

Deep Learning with LSTMs
LSTMs are a type of Recurrent Neural Network which have had great success with Natural Language Processing (NLP), sound processing and many other types of sequence data. This meetup the discussion will be around 2 blog posts and an academic paper relating to LSTMs. These two blog posts describe how LSTMs work : - http://colah.github.io/posts/2015-08-Understanding-LSTMs/ - http://www.wildml.com/2015/10/recurrent-neural-network-tutorial-part-4-implementing-a-grulstm-rnn-with-python-and-theano/ And if you want to look at something more advanced, this paper examines some of the tricks and techniques which can be used to get LSTMs to perform well for NLP tasks: - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1708.02182.pdf We encourage you to read some of the material before the meetup. It is fine if you don't understand all of it. The purpose of this meetup is to ask questions and to learn. Have a think about any research papers or Kaggle competitions you would like to discuss in future meetups. We will spend a few minutes on this at the end Meeting Schedule: 6:00 - 6:30 - Arrive at venue 6:30 - Introductions 6:35 - Discussion 7:25 - Discuss and decide on next topic 7:30 - Meeting ends A big 'Thank you' to GridAKL for providing the venue!

What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in data science and machine learning. The group will meet to discuss concepts and principals of data science for the purpose of learning. I started this group because I recently returned from overseas where I attended a similar group in which I found a lot of value in the discussion. These meetups may be discussions about things such as specific kaggle competitions or discussions of readings from academic papers or other text.
