Python Multiprocessing

Introduction by Martin:

This Friday’s reading group will be a hands-on tutorial on multiprocessing in Python. Please make sure to have Python 2 installed on your laptop. No further preparation needed, if you want an IDE: Spyder is decent. Slides.

Topics discussed:

  • CPU count
  • Process class
  • Queues
  • Locks
  • Pool class
  • Hands-on challenge!

Recurrent Neural Network and LSTMs

A different formula will be attempted for this reading group: everyone shall each study their own paper on the subject of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) or Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), and present it.
