Hi all,
Here is your bi-weekly dose of NLP and ML goodness!
This time, we have: a cool explainer video of an ICLR 2018 paper; Ilya Sutskever giving a talk on meta-learning; all the ICLR 2018 presentations; loads of cool tutorials featuring Pointer Sentinel Mixture Models, PyTorch internals, and Einsum; content around accessible and open-source AI; cool NLP applications such as generating Tinder profiles or predicting wine prices; lessons of 2 years of AI research, a compelling article about bias, and a lot more.
I’ve also added a new category What’s hot 🔥.
Here I’ll summarize at a glance any cool results, neat tricks, jaw-dropping demos, or anything else that I’ve found particularly compelling over the last two weeks. Let me know if you like this format 👍🏻 or prefer not to see this again 👎🏻 at the bottom of the newsletter.

What's hot 🔥
Chunyuan Li and Jason Yosinski from Uber do a great job describing their ICLR 2018 paper "Measuring the Intrinsic Dimension of Objective Landscapes". I hope we will see more of these explainer videos for scientific papers.
Ilya Sutskever gives a talk about meta-learning and self-play at MIT's AGI course.
