What we're about

We'd like to pull together a small group of people who would like to work through current research in machine learning. We'd like to be a group of 6 who meet once or twice a month, taking turns in leading/presenting material in recent research. In our first meeting, we'll agree on priorities, but here are some suggestions of work we might read:
Computer vision:
YOLOv3 - https://pjreddie.com/media/files/papers/YOLOv3.pdf
Faster R-CNN - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1506.01497.pdf
RetinaNet - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1708.02002.pdf

NLP:
ULM-FiT - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1801.06146.pdf
BERT - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1810.04805.pdf
ELMO - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1802.05365.pdf

Due to our available space, we're capped at 6 for our initial meetup. We request that you only sign up if you are committed to attending and fully participating. In our first meeting, we'll discuss RetinaNet - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1708.02002.pdf , but our primary focus will be organizational and finalizing future goals and meeting times/places.
