GitXiv – collaborative open source computer science
Just wanted to highlight GitXiv, an interesting new resource that combines paper pre-print publication, implementation code and a discussion forum in the same space. The About page explains the concept well:
In recent years, a highly interesting pattern has emerged: Computer scientists release new research findings on arXiv and just days later, developers release an open-source implementation on GitHub. This pattern is immensely powerful. One could call it collaborative open computer science (cocs).
GitXiv is a space to share links to open computer science projects. Countless Github and arXiv links are floating around the web. Its hard to keep track of these gems. GitXiv attempts to solve this problem by offering a collaboratively curated feed of projects. Each project is conveniently presented as arXiv + Github + Links + Discussion. Members can submit their findings and let the community rank and discuss it. A regular newsletter makes it easy to stay up-to-date on recent advancements. It´s free and open.
The feed contains a lot of yummy research on things like deep learning, natural language processing and graphs, but GitXiv is not restricted to any particular computer science areas – anything is welcome!
