07:09 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey @saksham189, Would it be okay to discuss some proposal related questions here ? (This is in reference to a comment you left on my Proposal).
07:13 < kartikdutt18Gitt> > `zoq on Freenode` Prince Gupta (Gitter): Agreed, I think we can concat the input?
07:13 < kartikdutt18Gitt> I think that makes sense. I will add a comment to #2264 to move forward with the same. Thanks a lot.

10:05 < GauravTirodkar[m> Hello Everyone! My name is Gaurav, and I'm in my Junior year of Computer Engineering. I have a huge interest in programming and have been working around with python c++ for a long time. I also have worked on a few deep learning projects. Any sort of guidance on the application process would be really appreciated!

10:23 < Param-29Gitter[m> Hey Gaurav, I hope these are helpful: ,
11:02 -!- alaina [a20cd0dd@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:09 < GauravTirodkar[m> Is a contribution compulsory before submitting the application
11:10 < GauravTirodkar[m> because I have done a lot of deep learning work but haven't contributed yet
11:11 < himanshu_pathak[> kartikdutt18 (Gitter): Hey can you tell on which project you are trying to work
11:11 -!- favre49 [~favre49@] has joined #mlpack
11:13 < favre49> GauravTirodkar[m: Contribution gives us an idea of your knowledge of C++ or ML, but it's not compulsory at all
11:24 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey Himanshu, I have applied for implementation of ANN Algorithms , mainly adding an object detection suite.
11:27 < himanshu_pathak[> kartikdutt18 (Gitter): Oh good I have applied for implementing deep learning modules adding some classification modules
11:29 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Great, Both of these projects should be fun to work on.
11:34 < himanshu_pathak[> Yeah it's good to work for but we can complete only one in summer
11:34 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Also I made my way to Pooling layers for the copy constructor PR, at least till there I think we can call the other constructor and only problem is with recurrent layer and work around would involve storing the constructor params similar to what you did in Convolution, what do you suggest?
11:36 < himanshu_pathak[> kartikdutt18 (Gitter): yes we can do That
11:39 < himanshu_pathak[> I am just thinking about we can introduce some memory leak while calling a constructor inside another constructor may be I am wrong what do you suggest?
11:44 * kartikdutt18Gitt sent a long message: < >
11:46 < GauravTirodkar[m> <himanshu_pathak[ "kartikdutt18 (Gitter): Hey can y"> I am really intrigued with the Rrinforcement learning project.
11:46 < GauravTirodkar[m> > <undefined>
11:46 < GauravTirodkar[m> (edited) ... intrigued with the Rrinforcement learning ... => ... intrigued by the Reinforcement learning ...
11:47 < himanshu_pathak[> kartikdutt18 (Gitter): If that's the case So, I am wrong
11:48 < himanshu_pathak[> May be we can do this
11:48 < himanshu_pathak[> Gaurav Tirodkar: Good what are you trying to add
11:48 < kartikdutt18Gitt> himanshu_pathak: I am not sure though, I think we can wait for a reply from @rcrutin, @zoq
11:49 < himanshu_pathak[> kartikdutt18 (Gitter): yeah we should wait for their comments
11:54 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Gaurav Tirodkar, That's very interesting, We have an amazing tutorial for that. You can take a look at this [link](
12:02 < saksham189Gitter> @kartikdutt18 I have replied to you on the proposal. I think it would be best to discuss on the proposal itself so that we can keep track of the discussion.
12:02 < saksham189Gitter> (edited) ... the discussion. => ... the discussion although it is also fine to ask any questions here.
12:04 < kartikdutt18Gitt> That makes sense, Thanks a lot.

14:13 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> In the >alpha Dropout layer
14:13 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> I can see in the definition in the paper that in a layer we try to push the activation result mean to 0 and variance to 1, but I am not able to decipher the same from the implementation. can someone help me with the same?
14:13 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> (edited) ... the >alpha Dropout ... => ... the alpha Dropout ...
14:14 -!- favre49 [~favre49@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
15:16 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> maybe the documentation can help
15:40 < GauravTirodkar[m> <kartikdutt18Gitt "Gaurav Tirodkar, That's very int"> Yes! Definitely.
15:42 < ShikharJaiswalGi> @rcurtin Some proposals do not have edit access provided to them, so essentially I don't think that the mentors can comment on them. I have rather added my suggestions on internal review, but I don't think the students can see them.
15:44 < himanshu_pathak[> Shikhar Jaiswal (Gitter): Hey can you a review on my proposal I have to change many things but some comments from your side will bw helpful
15:44 < himanshu_pathak[> * Shikhar Jaiswal (Gitter): Hey can you give a review on my proposal I have to change many things but some comments from your side will be helpful
15:46 < himanshu_pathak[> Implementing Essential deep learning module
15:48 < ShikharJaiswalGi> @himanshupathak21061998 Sure.
15:49 < himanshu_pathak[> Shikhar Jaiswal (Gitter): Thanks
15:51 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey @ShikharJ, Can I trouble you for a review as well, if possible I would love to get your opinion as well. Its on Application of ANN Algorithms.
16:01 * KarthikeyanR[m]1 sent a long message: < >
16:02 < ShikharJaiswalGi> @kartikdutt18 The priority is on unreviewed proposals for now, so I'm not sure if I'll have a chance to go through all, I'll try my best.
16:02 < zoq> ShikharJaiswalGi: Student can't see those comments, but I think since the instructions are pretty clear how to setup the appliction, there is nothing really we can do.
16:03 -!- favre49 [~favre49@] has joined #mlpack
16:04 < ShikharJaiswalGi> @zoq I see, that's unfortunate.
16:05 < abhisaphire[m]> Hey Shikhar Jaiswal (Gitter), if you are comfortable with binding generators. Can you please have a look at my proposal also. Thanks and sorry if I am causing any trouble
16:05 < kartikdutt18Gitt> @ShikharJ, I understand, Thanks a lot.
16:18 < chopper_inbound4> Hi Shikhar Jaiswal (Gitter) zoq : I think I was the culprit. I have changed the access rights. I am really sorry about that. If possible can any of you revisit the application with name "Mrityunjay Tripathi".
16:24 < rcurtin> favre49: you here? maybe easier to debug the ensmallen push issue over chat :)
16:25 < favre49> rcurtin: yup
16:25 < rcurtin> so you tried to push a commit and it said the same thing about two approving reviews required?
16:25 < favre49> Yeah, same error
16:25 < rcurtin> ok... the Contributors team has "write" access... let me check the protected status of the branch
16:26 < rcurtin> oh, I see... I have "Require pull request reviews before merging", which says:
16:26 < rcurtin> "When enabled, all commits must be made to a non-protected branch and submitted via a pull request with the required number of approving reviews and no changes requested before it can be merged into a branch that matches this rule."
16:27 < rcurtin> but I don't have "Include administrators" checked, so the requirements never applied to me :-O
16:27 < rcurtin> so, I guess, it's actually me that has to change my workflow :)
16:27 < rcurtin> would it be easy for you to open a PR with the changes? I'm realizing now what we could have done that would work was push to Joe's branch as a maintainer (which I don't usually do), then merged
16:28 < rcurtin> I'll have to go ahead and do this release using my special administrator privileges, then I'll have to disable those special administrator privileges and figure out how to adapt the script accordingly :)
16:29 < rcurtin> I guess now, instead of pushing to master, it will have to open a PR for release changes (which is fine), and then I have to figure out how tags can be pushed (maybe those aren't protected)
16:29 < favre49> Ahh makes sense
16:29 < rcurtin> alternately, if you want, if you can just email me the patch from the commit (maybe made with `git format-patch`) I can just apply it to master and go from there
16:30 < favre49> Hmm let me give that a shot, never done that before. I'll mail you in a couple
16:31 < rcurtin> ok, sounds good
16:36 < favre49> Alright, should have been sent?
16:41 < rcurtin> haven't received it yet
16:44 -!- borontion [df68f075@] has joined #mlpack
16:45 -!- borontion [df68f075@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:46 < favre49> Ah, seems like a gmail issue. I'll try mailing it manually instead of from the cli
16:46 < favre49> That works, right?
16:47 < rcurtin> sure, I don't see why it wouldn't work :)
16:47 < rcurtin> if we get desperate you can just post it on pastebin :-D
16:49 < favre49> Alright, this time it should be sent
16:49 < favre49> I find mail infuriating in general, I'm currently trying to get mutt working on my laptop
16:52 < rcurtin> favre49: thanks, the format wasn't quite right from what I got for `git am` but I could still see the changes so I just applied them :)
16:52 < rcurtin> next I'll release ensmallen, then start thinking about how to update that release script
16:53 < favre49> Sorry about that, I'll get the thing fixed. My list of things to fix before lockdown ends grows ever longer...
16:55 < rcurtin> no worries :)
16:56 < rcurtin> before we got locked down here I quickly went and bought some wood to build a desk
16:56 < rcurtin> only problem is, I wasn't able to go by a friend's wood shop to mill the wood, so I have to use hand planes
16:56 < rcurtin> :)
16:59 -!- M_slack_mlpack_7 [slackml_44@gateway/shell/] has joined #mlpack
17:01 < jeffin143[m]> I love lockdown :)
17:05 < favre49> Sounds like a good workout
17:05 < rcurtin> yeah, my arms certainly get tired... :)
17:06 < rcurtin> it's a good routine... hand plane until the arms get tired, come back inside and type until the fingers get tired, rinse and repeat :)
17:06 < favre49> jeffin143[m]: The only thing that's changed for me is that I'm at home.. I still have online classes
17:13 < jeffin143[m]> favre49: omg
17:13 < jeffin143[m]> They are teaching you ?
17:13 < jeffin143[m]> I don't find Indian institutes teaching that good 😂
17:14 < favre49> Yup. BITS has no attendance policy though, so it's not often that I go for them
17:15 < favre49> Unless the subject is taught well. All the classes are recorded, so I can watch them at my own leisure
