We will position meta-learning with respect to related areas, such as transfer learning, multi-task learning, and continual learning. The course will also discuss various applications of meta-learning in the fields of computer vision, natural language processing, reinforcement learning, and robotics. Students will be required to present and critique research papers and perform a related research project. By the end of the course, students will be able to understand and implement the state-of-the-art meta-learning algorithms and be ready to co
