TWIML Presents: Deep Learning Indaba 2018

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

A few weeks ago, machine learning & AI researchers, practitioners and students from Africa and around the world met at Stellenbosch University, South Africa, for the second annual Deep Learning Indaba, an event that aims to expand African participation in and contribution to the field. While I wasn’t able to make it to Cape Town, I did have a chance to speak with some of the event’s awesome speakers, and I’m excited to present our Deep Learning Indaba series.

Thanks to our Sponsor!

I’d like to send a big shout out to our friends at Google AI for their support of the podcast and their sponsorship of this series. In this podcast you heard Sara talk about the AI Residency program she’s in at Google. Well, just yesterday they opened up applications for the 2019 program! The Google AI Residency is a one-year machine learning research training program with the goal of helping individuals become successful machine learning researchers. The program seeks Residents from a very diverse set of educational and professional backgrounds from all over the world, so if you think this is something that interests you, you should definitely apply!
