 4. Coding Train’s Youtube Course on Intelligence with P5.js by Daniel Shiffman
 Daniel Shiffman, Professor at Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU Tisch, is teaching a course on Intelligence and the P5.js Javascript Library. This video begins a new series accompanying his new ITP spring 2017 course called “Intelligence and Learning”. His channel is an EXCELLENT source to learn how to program, algorithms, coding challenges while doing fun artsy stuff. The things learned here are easily applicable to other domains. 
1. OpenAI gitter channel
Great resource to ask about general AI questions and how to use OpenAI to test your algorithms.

2. Math And Algorithms Meetup

They are discussing the Deep Learning Book and troubleshooting how to install Keras and Tensorflow to mess with Deep Forward Networks. Super exciting stuff! Check them out.
