The definitive weekly newsletter on A.I. and Deep Learning, published by Waikit Lau and Arthur Chan. Our background spans MIT, CMU, Bessemer Venture Partners, Nuance, BBN, etc. Every week, we curate and analyze the most relevant and impactful developments in A.I.
It's also the beginning of a new semester. So we have three new sets of videos to shared with you. One from CMU Deep Learning course. The other two are from MIT: Introduction to Deep Learning, as well as Prof. Lex Fridman's Artificial General Intelligence class.
Oh, did you know AIDL just have 100000 members?

We are always indebted to Prof. Hinton on his work of deep learning. He said the following words with much humanity:
""We're machines," says Hinton. "We're just produced biologically. Most people doing AI don't have doubt that we're machines. We're just extremely fancy machines. And I shouldn't say just. We're special, wonderful machines.""
AI and augmented reality have many interesting connections. For example, suppose your virtual object doesn't directly communicate with the environment, then detect and identify the object would require image detection and classification techniques. Google's post is a great showcase of how these two fields can work together.
This is the first time CMU deep learning class, taught by Prof. Bhiksha Raj, is opened up to the public. Just looking at the list, there are many interesting topics such as DNN as the universal approximator, is only covered in this class.
