    Our Goals and Philosophy

    The Silicon Valley Deep Learning Group (SVDLG) is a not-for-profit community initiative with over 4,000 members in the San Fransisco Bay Area. SVDLG’s goal is to provide a universal point of entry and avenue of advancement for members of the Silicon Valley community interested in the evolution of the technology of Deep Neural Networks, also called Deep Learning. SVDLG was founded in the spirit of organizations such as the Homebrew Computer Club of the 70s and 80s. We would like to facilitate the sharing of information between scientists developing the technology, engineer practitioners, investors, founders, entrepreneurs, the media, and other interested parties. Working together everyone can find a way to succeed and take part in what we believe is the next great revolution in computer technology. You are welcome to come join us. Please take the time to sign up on as seating can be limited. We are excited to meet you and to learn from what you have to contribute to the SVDLG community. We are also on Facebook and Twitterand we are looking forward to having you join us, even if you live and work outside Silicon Valley. Join Us on the Meetup
