Interesting, do you have a link to the lecture?

IIRC fastai transitioned from keras/tf to pytorch while back so I don't understand what's happening now




- the 2017 course was keras/tf (+ a little pytorch once Jeremy hit the limits of keras)

- the 2018 course is pytorch.

- the 2019 course (part 2) is vanilla python, and then the last couple of classes re-build everything using swift.

The lectures will be released soon.


I'm not sure what to think:

"The combination of Python, PyTorch, and fastai is working really well for us, and for our community. We have many ongoing projects using fastai for PyTorch [...] This stack will remain the main focus of our teaching and development.

It is very early days for Swift for TensorFlow. We definitely don’t recommend anyone tries to switch all their deep learning projects [...]"

Implementation in vanilla python seems exciting. Do you any idea when lectures will be released?

I was a bit put off by the use of fastai library in 2019 part 1 course mostly because library makes it sound too simple.


Per closing paragraph of https://www.fast.ai/2019/03/06/fastai-swift/, part 2 is scheduled for sometime this month.




Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
