Deep Neural Notebooks

By Mukul Khanna
Deep Neural Notebooks is a podcast where I like to discuss topics ranging from Deep Learning, NLP and Computer Vision to Neuroscience and Open Source Software, through conversations with experts about their thoughts on the state of their specialisations, how things fit into the bigger picture, their journey so far and the road ahead.

I believe that it is through conversations like these that we can boil down the essence of vast resources of knowledge and expertise into more consumable bits that can enrich our understanding of concepts and technologies that are shaping our world.
