◾ About
In this free online study program, we will be studying the "Dive into Deep Learning" (https://d2l.ai/index.html) book by Aston Zhang, Zack C. Lipton, Mu Li, and Alex J. Smola. Every week we will teach (remotely) a portion of the book and assign take-home exercises and reading materials.

All study sessions will be free and fully-remote. All sessions will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyna_OxOWL7IEuOwb7WhmxQ?view_as=subscriber).

Unlike other study groups, the format (tentative) will be as follows:

- Chapters will be presented with slides, which will be followed by code walkthroughs
- For every session, there will be a segment for discussion and Q&A
- After every session, we will assign take-home exercises corresponding to the material covered in that session. Solutions should be uploaded to GitHub. (More instructions coming soon!)
- Before every session, we will provide a list of extra reading material that will be helpful for the upcoming session
- We plan to have guest lectures and presentations to provide additional practical value to students (TBA)
- There will be one final project which will be done in groups. The groups have to present their work towards the end of the program. (More information coming soon!)
