How to find us

Easiest way in is via the 2nd floor walk-way, that you can get to from the bus stop using the escalator on the corner. Take a right at the top of the escalator, and then stroll to Google.

Details

After our kick-off event in February, we're going to maintain the idea of having something for beginner users, and something for more advanced folk - but we're not going to repeat the very basics...

We plan to have three sections to cover the range of experience that we hope will attend :

1. Working with Images : CNN models will be introduced by Martin, from the basics. And, if there's time we'll delve into ways to fool the network...

2. Since he's in Singapore for FOSSASIA (a huge Open Source event this coming weekend), we've been able to grab Andrew Selle (from the Google Brain team) to talk about the work he's involved in. Expect to hear about XLA and other techniques to speed up TensorFlow.

3. For the regular "aiming higher" talk, Sam will explain the basics of one of the current hot topics : Generative models and Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), including some quirky variations.

Coming soon : "Lightning Talks" - where we welcome folks to come up and talk about something cool they've done with TensorFlow and/or Deep Learning for 5-10mins (if you have slides, then #max=10).

The key for the Lightning Talks slot is simply the cool/interesting factor. It doesn't matter whether you're an expert or and enthusiastic beginner : Given the response we had to the last event, we're sure there are lots of people who would be interested to hear what you've been playing with. Please suggest yourself here : https://www.meetup.com/TensorFlow-and-Deep-Learning-Singapore/suggestion/

Quite a few people have already contacted us, but we know there are more out there! Because Andrew Selle was added to the line-up at this late stage, we'll give everyone a bit more time (i.e. until the MeetUp in April...)

Also, since we *won't* have food, please plan to grab a bite before/after the event...
