Intrinsic Dimension


Sam Witteveen and I started the PyTorch and Deep Learning Singapore group on MeetUp back in August 2017. Since it has been such a long time, we decided to have our third MeetUp, once again hosted in Facebook's fine Singapore offices. Despite it being in their cafeteria, there was (sadly) no food.

In addition to Sam Witteveen describing the new features of 0.4.0, and the roadmap to 1.0 for PyTorch, we also had Stéphane Lallée (from Facebook itself) who talked about his PhD work with robots that learned autonomously.

For my part, I gave an introductory talk about the Uber paper "Measuring the Intrinsic Dimension of Objective Landscapes". In order to play around with the ideas myself, I rebuilt their models in PyTorch, and demonstrated the code in a Notebook via Colab 'hands-on'.
