Deep Learning Weekly
Welcome to a truly eventful week in deep learning. This week WaveNet launched in Google assistant, DeepMind launched a new ethics and society research initiative, we learn about the problem with GANs, how to setup a deep learning environment on macOS and that floating point arithmetic provide enough non-linearity for training neural networks.
As always happy hacking and reading.
