Join our technical discussion group showcase where group leads will give brief overviews of the topics they discussed and the best recipes they created over the past 5 weeks & we will answer any questions for the next batch. Discussion groups run every 5 weeks on an array of topics for junior & senior ML practitioners as well as some other emerging tech topics, but all levels are welcome.

Background:
AISC is bringing backing our ‘socratic circles’ format in the form of AI DISCUSSION GROUPS! The old format produced rigorous discussions and debates on recent impactful papers in ML, a healthy environment for junior and senior ML folks to teach and be taught, catalyzed long-term friendships, and overall developed a sense of community in the AI/ML community space.
Now we’re back, but at a larger scale, both in the breadth of topics covered and in terms of location-independence. We are starting 10 (and more to come) discussion groups on various topics on ML, led by experts in the field. The discussion groups will focus not only on learning but also on creation – sharing what we have learned to the world in the form of learning recipes featuring original content like community blog posts, code, and videos. Every once in a while, the discussion groups will contain cameo appearances by leading researchers in the field!
Each discussion group will have its own format, but it usually consists of a weekly touchpoint. Below is a list of discussion groups and their respective groups leads.
