Silverpond's inaugural intern Ben Phillips

Silverpond intern Ben Phillips at The Pond front door

In November 2016 Silverpond decided to offer its very first Machine Learning internship. Out of a pool of very high calibre candidates we landed on Ben Phillips, and by December we had welcomed him to home base at The Pond in Little Collins Street, as our first intern. Ben has been a calm, positive and constantly friendly face around the office and we have really appreciated what he has brought to the team, as well as his help with setup for Meetups and events, and his classic Dad jokes. After three months Ben is off out into the world, and I sat down with Ben to reflect back on what he had learned during his time at Silverpond.

Diversifying The Pond!

Silverpond is committed to supporting women in technology

We’d like to go somewhat towards addressing the gender imbalance in the industry by taking the opportunity, while we have the space, to offer free desks to female-identifying coders, data scientists, or deep learners to work from the Pond until such time as we get another big client in.

The Deep Learning Book

Last Friday, the Deep-Learning Reading-Group who meet at Silverpond weekly to present and discuss chapters from papers and publications reached the end our our deep-dive into “The Deep-Learning Book” by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville. The journey has taken us 6 months and seemed like an ambitious commitment when it was first proposed, but has been an invaluable introduction to the subject of deep-learning for myself, and I’m sure, a few others who have attended as well.
