It’s interesting to see the pendulum swing back to representation learning. During my PhD, most of my collaborators and I were primarily interested in representation learning as a biproduct of sample generation, not sample generation itself. https://t.co/i0aRhgN3LL

We’d also recommend following hashtags for the topics that you’re interested in. Twitter’s own machine learning algorithm will pick some of the most popular tweets with that hashtag to show you. You can follow broad hashtags like #AI, #MachineLearning, and #DataScience, or some more specific topics like #ComputerVision or #NLP and #NLProc for natural language processing.
