This is a little write up of a very small project I did, inspired by Coding Garden with CJ on youtube & twitch (specifically this video), and Net Ninja express tutorials:
A URL-shortener that uses a sequence of emojis to encode each URL.
The code is available on github, and you can try it out at

The goal of this project is to reproduce the methods and experiments of the following paper:
C. Cortes, X. Gonzalvo, V. Kuznetsov, M. Mohri, S. Yang AdaNet: Adaptive Structural Learning of Artificial Neural Networks. We will try to reproduce their method that consists in building neural networks whose structure is learned and optimized at the same time as it’s weights.This method will be applied to a binary classification task on images from the CIFAR-10 dataset.
