DLCT Talk Series

Deep Learning: Classics and Trends (DLCT) is the longest running MLC event. It started in 2018 as a paper reading group and has almost never missed a week since then. The vibe is interactive, causal, free-flow and unfettered. Subscribe with your email to stay on top of what's coming each week.
