Deep Learning Weekly
Hey ho everyone,
We have one last issue for you this year wrapping up the last two weeks in deep learning. We finish up with a nice tour of deep learning achievements over the past, a new project on AI ON, a Nigerian startup that uses deep learning to save thousands of infants every year,  and deep neural evolution shows that a genetic algorithm can produce results on par with traditional RL techniques.
The deep learning wishes you a happy new year and looks forward to another wild year in deep learning!
