My NLP Curriculum for August 2020

This is the continuation of what I have been doing for last two months. You can refer to my earlier reading lists for June & July.

In June I over estimated myself as to what I can read in a month. I couldn’t complete the syllabus I set for myself. I refined my reading list to accommodate the time in July. I was able to complete most of it but couldn’t work on a project.

In August I’ll focus only on the one Course on Natural Language Processing by Stanford. I have so far completed 10 Lectures from the series. In this month I’ll aim to complete 10 more lectures from the course.

Each lecture is very deep and requires additional readings and practice. I typically go through each video lecture at-least twice.
