Learning Materials

Everything past this point is only somewhat organized. It could use re-organization.

Most of the stuff on here is semi-organized machine learning and deep learning links/articles/resources.

Note that it currently (2017-04-15) only displays the sections of Andrej Karpathy’s research interests, specifically AI/ML and related, but you can fork the github project and maybe configure it for other sections.

Sonnet (github repository) is a higher-level framework built around TensorFlow, released by Deepmind and introduced in their blog post. “We’ve found that writing code which explicitly represents submodules allows easy code reuse and quick experimentation – Sonnet promotes writing modules which declare other submodules internally, or are passed other modules at construction time.”
