A quick look at MXNet which is a deep learning framework positioned as a competitor (successor?) to Caffe. It has bindings for Julia, Python and R currently and has a GPU backend capability. (more info here: https://github.com/dmlc/mxnet)
If anyone wants to do a 5 to 10 minute presentation on a Machine Learning topic that would be great as well.
