@dpwiz I wrote up some stuff on my plume instance https://blog.ksteimel.duckdns.org/~/BenchmarkingResearchTools/building-an-amd-deep-learning-machine-part-3

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
