You finished MLQE2022 - what to do next?

The best advice with ML is to learn by doing, try to complete all the course notebooks and really understand the code. PyTorch website has a great tutorials and documentation that will help you to learn more. Best practice is to find a small problem you want to solve with ML and try to write a code that does so from scratch.

On the content and theory side, these are some of our favorite resources:

  • first let me advertise a Jupyterbook we wrote with colleagues from Zurich, it contains more details for most things I discussed in the lecture and lots of extra exercises

  • wonderful book by Michael Nielsen on Neural Networks and Deep Learning is a place to head to for deeper conceptual understanding

  • Deep Learning for Computer Vision is a course ran by Fei-Fei Li at Stanford and has the best no-nonsense explanation of backpropagation, convolutions and neural net design

  • For relating ML to physics, you can check out arXiv pre-print of another book we wrote with colleagues on Modern Applications of Machine Learning in Quantum Physics and Chemistry

  • Another great ML for physics lectures are these by Florian Marquardt

  • If you were interested in some of the QMAI research topics I mentioned during this course, you can check out our papers or watch some of my lectures
