All Things Data

It's quite common to see people sharing papers about small advancements in NLP, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and similar fields.

Something difficult to see in fields such as Data Engineering, so this is just a collection of papers, articles, and books I've enjoyed reading lately. Some of them include notes and thoughts I wanted to share.
