First let me present myself. I am currently a data scientist at an US based company. I am familiar with the python tensorflow library, which I used on some projects in reinforcement learning and image classification. Prior to this, I was a postdoc and a PhD beforehand in pure mathematics, in the field of algebraic and differential geometry. You can check some of my academic work in https://sites.google.com/view/jantonio-homepage/home
It has been a while that I am looking for interesting open source projects, which I can help improve and mature as well as learn as much as possible from experts and more experienced peers.
Recently, I came across with Swift for TensorFlow, and I got extremely enthusiastic about its innovative vision and by being such a young project. Moreover, after spending some time learning the core fundamentals of Swift programming language, I came to deeply appreciate its design, expressivity and efficiency.
For this reason, I would be delighted to join the community and start contributing as much as I can. I already did some research on some of the project code, but it has been difficult to find material that I can contribute to, right away.
Therefore, I am writing this email to not only present myself, but also to kindly ask you if you could give me some hints on starter projects, that I could take on, as well as meaningful learning material.
I will be delighted to have the opportunity to be part of Swift for TensorFlow project.
Thank you in advance for your attention and consideration,
Best wishes and merry christmas,
