Weekly Issue 27 - Origin Story of Prof. Andrew Ng, Backdoored ANN and Superconvergence


Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

Our main piece this week is about Prof. Andrew Ng, on his earlier work on machine learning and why he decided to teach ML to the public. We also take a closer look at the secret sauce of Waymo's SDC development: their Texas campus and their simulation facilities.

Other than that, we have links on six blog posts and three papers. They are mostly technical topics - leisure reading for the last week in the Summer. Perhaps what caught our eyes is the idea of backdoored neural network and superconvergence. The former is a new form of attack on DNN from the a malicious model preparer. The latter promises 10x training speed for a class of loss functions.

Finally, if you want to take the deeplearning.ai class, AIDL now has a new satellite group just for you!
