March May June August 2016 early-2017
Why the delays?
The delays in the release schedule can be attributed to two factors.
- Changes in scope: initially, ml4a was to be a collection of reading materials for a single class, and now seeks to be more broadly useful, necessitating the development of new features and chapters. Over time, Demos and Guides were elevated from supporting materials to the book into full-fledged sections of their own.
- The goalposts keep moving: since the initial version of this page went up, we've seen AlphaGo, the announcement of TensorFlow, deep generator nets, synthetic gradients,
stacked approximate regression machines, and many other major milestones in the field. To keep ml4a contemporary, we have to learn how to keep up with the field.
