I’m Victor Schmidt. I come from Paris, France and started this blog in Dec 16. Why? Because I was fed up of only using Github’s
readme.md files to share what I was doing.
To quickly sum up my learning track I went to a French Engineering school (École polytechnique) then took a gap year to work at Dreem and travelled from India to Japan for 6 months. I then pursued an MSc. in Machine Learning at University College London (UCL).
Consequently, I worked for a year as an NLP Data Scientist at the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance fighting financial fraud, as part of the Public Interest Entrepreneurs program.
I’m now a PhD candidate at the Montréal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA) supervised by Pr. Yoshua Bengio. I work on AI to fight Climate Change.
Here you’ll find:
- Tutorials about how to implement Neural Nets with Keras and Lasagne.
- Resources I find interesting (see top of the page) - (Needs an update, working on it)
- Posts to explain issues I ran into and solved, random thoughts or pieces of advice.
Please use the comments but don’t expect me to solve your problems : having a full-time PhD and many side projects (such as this blog or Metada) I most probably won’t have the time. If I do however, it will be with pleasure!
Don’t hesitate on leaving comments, topics you’d like me to go deeper into or new ones I should scratch.
Feel free to signal broken links and typos. I know I have work to do to update the tutorials, I might one day. If you want to help updating them, get in touch.
And yes, I know Facebook and Twitter buttons aren’t aligned. I can’t have them do so. Any help is welcome.
