Caffe2: A new player on the scene of Deep Learning frameworks

2017-08-17T16:34:41+00:00April 25th, 2017|

Few days ago Facebook announced Caffe2, a new open-source, cross-platform framework for deep learning. They say that Caffe2 is the successor to Caffe ( really?), the deep learning framework developed by Berkeley AI Research and community contributors. Caffe2’s GitHub page describes it as “an experimental refactoring of Caffe that allows a more flexible way to organize computation.” As my readers know, when [...]

DeepMind moves to TensorFlow. Great!

2017-08-08T22:41:55+00:00May 3rd, 2016|

This is great news for my book! It confirms that TensorFlow is a good choice for you too! For nearly four years, the open source Torch7 machine learning library has served as primary research platform at DeepMind.  Now it is time of TensorFlow. You can know more details in this post at Google Research Blog.
