The TWIML Community is a global network of machine learning, deep learning and AI practitioners and enthusiasts.

We organize ongoing educational programs including study groups for several popular ML/AI courses such as Fast.ai Deep Learning, Machine learning and NLP, Stanford CS224N, Deeplearning.ai and more. We also host several special interest groups focused on topics like Swift for Tensorflow, and competing in Kaggle competitions.

When you join the Community you’ll be invited to our active Slack, where members exchange info, tips, ideas and assistance. You can participate in any of our programs by joining the appropriate Slack channel. Please keep in mind our Community Values & Guidelines when you join our Community – we’re excited you’re here!
