Deep Learning Reading Group
This is a complementary group to the Machine Learning Reading Group. We meet informally every fortnight to discuss topics from the Deep Learning Book by Goodfellow, Bengio and Courville. This book is now available in print. You can order your copy from Amazon.
Please feel free to come along for one or more of our sessions. We offer free biscuits and interesting discussions about Deep Learning.
Please note that the aim of this group is to collaboratively learn about Deep Learning. Therefore, we will only publish a provisional schedule of the topics subject to change depending on the pace and participants' feedback.
