Deep Learning Networks: Advantages of ReLU over Sigmoid Function - Data Science Central
This was posted as a question on StackExchange. The state of the art of non-linearity is to use rectified linear units (ReLU) instead of sigmoid function in deep neural network. What are the advantages? I know that training a network when ReLU is used would be faster, and it is more biological inspired, what are the other advantages? (That is, any disadvantages of using sigmoid)?

Build a Blog with React and Markdown using Gatsby from taylorbell on eggheadio
A large part of a software developer’s time is spent searching the internet for answers to a never-ending stream of questions. Often, the answers we find are on blogs written by people who’ve been there, and found a solution. Isn’t it time you paid it forward?
Gatsby.js is a static site generator for React with a plugin ecosystem that makes it super easy to publish.

In this course, you’ll build a Gatsby site that transforms Markdown documents from your local filesystem into HTML. From there, you’ll use GraphQL to query posts for displaying on an index page, link between posts, and group posts by tags. After your site has been compiled, you’ll see how to deploy it via Github Pages.

At The Joint Multi-Conference on Human-Level Artificial Intelligence held 2018 in Prague, AI experts and thought leaders from around the world shared their goals, hopes, and progress towards human-level AI (HLAI), which is the last stop before true AGI or the same thing, depending on who you ask.
