Deep Learning Weekly
Unsurprisingly this week was somewhat of a slow news week. Non-the-less, we still bring you interesting industry surveys, new public data sets, a course on practical deep learning, a hand-written text recognition library and Apple’s first research paper.
Enjoy and use the time to catch up with some paper reading ;)

As always, if you’d like to support deep learning weekly share this issue with friends and colleagues.

Thanks!
