TensorFlow & PyTorch User Group

The deep learning research community at Princeton comprises over 10 academic departments and more than 200 researchers. The TensorFlow and PyTorch User Group was created to serve as a campus-wide platform for researchers to connect with one another to discuss their work and the use of the tools. In addition to monthly presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, the group hosts external speakers from such companies as Google, NVIDIA and Intel. All members of the PU research community are welcome. Subscribe to the mailing list.

The group is sponsored by the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) and the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML).


Request for Proposals: Faculty Awards to Support Machine Learning Courses, Diversity, and Inclusion

Google AI and the TensorFlow team have a new funding opportunity open to universities. If you’re a faculty member interested in teaching machine learning courses, and/or leading or contributing to diversity initiatives, please read on to learn more. We have parallel goals for these awards, and you may apply for funding with one or both in mind.
