Deep Learning: Classics and Trends (DLCT) is a paper reading group run by Rosanne since 2018. Read more about its genesis story, underlying philosophy and random trivia on its original site.

We do not record talks, to create a safe, cozy space that allows “stupid questions”, which we found to be the best way to connect and learn.

Subscribe with your email to receive a weekly reminder from Rosanne containing the Zoom link to join the meeting.

Nominate a speaker, a paper, or just share what you think. Self-nominations are welcome and encouraged!
