In order to cater to a diverse audience, there will be 2 sessions every Saturday – you can attend both, one of them or none, it’s totally up to you! If you don’t want to attend the sessions, throughout the day there will be open hacking on creating open-source code implementations of the top research paper pre-prints that week. Or use that time to catch-up on lectures and readings (Afternoon sessions will be more focused towards demo and hands on Coding !) while discussing with peers.
Session 1 a : Practical Deep Learning
Using the free and proven Fast.ai materials, this is perfect for beginners in deep learning and machine learning, with some prior Python programming experience and high school math knowledge – and it’d get you to a stage where you can implement cutting-edge deep learning models, in just 14 weeks! Fast.ai Lesson 5 (Recap) and 6 - Akash
Session 1 b: Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning
Covering the material in Stanford’s CS224n Winter 2017 course taught by Professor Christopher Manning and Richard Socher (Chief Scientist of Salesforce), we will discuss the specifics of the Lecture and Paper readings for the week and clarify questions. The last hour will be dedicated to kicking off the participant’s implementation of the models discussed, which can be completed over the following week. This session will cover topics like word vector representations, dependency parsing, recurrent neural networks and language models, machine translation, attention models, tree recursive neural networks, and speech processing.
Sesson 2 : Hands on Session : Not yet Finalized (Probably NLP Based).
We will Present the summary of the video lecture and will have discussion at any point if anyone has a question, and also breakout into small groups for the in-lecture exercises – removing any obstacles along the way, making sure that you can progress through the course confidently if you stick with us – that’s our commitment to you for your time investment!
For ease of the facilitator in-charge’s preparation for any particular week, participants are encouraged to read the papers and Watch the video lectures beforehand and post questions on specific parts of the content using the Nurture.ai platform’s highlight-commenting function.
