DSC Tech Talks Series Slides: Musings on Metalearning
Here at Dollar Shave Club, we believe in sharing our knowledge with each other. One way we aim to share knowledge is through an internal lunch-and-learn program called Tech Belly: Come for the food, stay for the knowledge.
Tech Belly is a chance for our engineers to talk about new technologies we are interested in or are experimenting with, such as elixir, neural networks, go, Neo4j, and virtual reality. Occasionally, the talks can be about ancillary topics. I recently had the opportunity to share what I've learned about learning, also known as Metalearning, in a recent Tech Belly event.
Below are the slides from my most recent talk: Musings on Metalearning, where I explored the idea of mental models, some useful mental models of learning, some techniques for learning, and other observations about learning in general.
