PyTorch With Baby Steps: From y = x To Training a ConvNet

May 8, 2018 · Austin, United States of America

This month Josh Mitchell will walk us through an explanation of PyTorch. The talk should be a great one for the newcomer and novice alike.


In this talk, Josh is going to take as anti-kitchen sink of an approach as possible to explaining PyTorch. In other words, he is going to start with demonstrating how to build a really obvious, really stupid model, then he's going to add one tiny piece to it at a time until it's a basic Convolutional Neural Network. His (lofty) goal is to make a large amount of jumps in such a way that he doesn't lose anyone, but he'll move fast enough that he won’t bore anyone.

After Josh's talk, we'll head over to CU29 (across the street from the Omni) for networking and deep learning discussions.

Parking is available at the Omni for a discounted rate of $5 for meetup attendees. Also, metered parking is free in downtown after 6pm on Tuesdays.
