Misc Resources

I love to share my knowledge with others, so I try to give talks whenever possible. This also led me to create AI Learners, a non-profit Spanish-speaking community in which we offer talks and workshops on topics such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision for people of all levels of knowledge.

Workshops

If you want to invite me to give a workshop/conference/talk, feel free to reach out to omar at huggingface.co. My aim is to do less talks and focus my energy in very key topics and high-quality content. Here are some of my previous talks (mix of English and Spanish):

Successes brag-list

  • Spontaneously proposing and organizing a “small meetup” in Paris during ICCV that ended up with over 2000 people (Yann approves)
  • Very involved in the release of Falcon 180, Llama 2, Code Llama, NASA x IBM, Mixtral, and XTTS, among others.
  • Enabled members from different teams to do impactful and exciting things, such as launching a course with Andrew Ng.
  • Launching the HF Discord Server which has nicely grown over the years (you can join at [hf.co/join/discord(hf.co/join/discord)])
  • Collaborated with the Google Colab team for a couple of features, such as notebooks on HF!
  • Going from 20k repos to over a million repositories on Hugging Face. Repos go brrr 🔥
  • Launch of Spaces Docker templates (collaborated with Docker, Argilla, Elixir, LabelStudio, AimStack, Shiny, ZenML, Anaconda, and Giskard).

Courses taught (very old)

I should update these one day

  • Machine Learning for economists (Mexico City, 2018)
    • Taught a small group of economists Machine Learning basics and how to apply it for practical economy problem.
    • Topics: Machine Learning, linear regression, classification, regularization, how to evaluate learning algorithms, deep learning, clustering, reinforcement learning, and recurrent neural networks.
  • Practical Deep Learning (Mexico City, 2018)
    • Gave a three months course at the ITESM (Tecnológico de Monterrey) to CS students about practical Deep Learning.
    • Topics: Introduction to Deep Learning, backpropagation, convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, LSTMs, embeddings and word2vec, Reinforcement Learning, world models, and an introduction to TensorFlow.
  • Immersive Web Development (Mexico City, 2017)
    • Throughout two semesters, I taught an introduction to web development course to CS students.
    • Topics: HTML5 & CSS3, designing their own framework, bootstrap and polymer, JavaScript, JQuery, APIs, Node, Selenium, and front end optimization.
