À propos de ce groupe
The best way to become an expert in machine learning is to learn from the best. Tuesday meetups are BYOT (Bring Your Own Topic) i.e. open discussions. Each Friday meetup, we'll study a pre-selected research paper in machine learning. Papers may include image processing, AGI, NLP or other deep learning topics. The papers and our discussions are in English. Meetings are limited to 25 people so our peer-to-peer style discussions don't become overwhelming.
Hi, I'm Robert Salita, the Paris group's organizer. I'm a veteran of the successful San Francisco Deep Learning Study Group. They gave me two pieces of advise in starting the Paris group; meet regularly, weekly if possible, and develop a core group of talent. I'm particularly looking for ML math guys to join us. So many of the research papers have advanced math involved.
Don't worry about not fully understanding the research papers. Even top San Francisco members would comment that they only understood 75% of the paper. Papers are often short on key details, don't make source code available, or lack ways to experiment with or duplicate findings.
