Research is done on the shoulders of giants. Luckily and unluckily, those giants spoke paper-English and documented their achievements kind of publicly so we could advance the science.
In this talk, we will dissect the structure of a paper, looking for the essential points that will help us understand it and implement it. Following we will get our hands dirty and implement the paper using Python. In particular, we will dive into the seminal paper "Attention is all you need" and implement a transformer using JAX.
The key takeaways from this talk are:
- Demystify academic reading.
- Understand the Transformer architecture.
- An introduction to the JAX ecosystem.
