DSB #110

Hi,

그것은금요일 and weekend and bulletin! Last volume was amazing and this one is amazing as well. For me it was interesting to learn about vokenization from Papers & Books or read about meta-loss landscapes in Analytical. But every article is full of interesting info. So go for it.

And as always, enjoy your reading.

Analytical

http://lukemetz.com/exploring-hyperparameter-meta-loss-landscapes-with-jax/ – Have you ever given a thought to exploration of hyperparameter meta-loss landscapes? No? Then now is the time to find out if there are better solutions than the gradient based method. (rcmd by reader)
