Extended abstract in Melbourne

in deep learning

Working with the Department of Education in Victoria has presented a number of adventures over the past three years. I used to think that nothing could trump the DET workshop with “Shrek” attending.

This was until I arrived all ready to present at Melbourne’s grand heritage hotel – The Hotel Windsor – and found myself on the pavement outside a lime green pub with pink elephants on the roof.

It can only be described as an extended abstract experience when you think you are presenting a masterclass at The Windsor Hotel in Melbourne and the taxi driver takes you to The Windsor Castle Hotel in Windsor

The pink elephants were my first clue that I needed to pay more attention – to be more careful in how I described my destination to Melbourne taxi drivers.
