Soumith Chintala (Facebook, New York) “An Overview of Deep Learning Frameworks and an Introduction to PyTorch”
3400 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218
In this talk, you will get an exposure to the various types of deep learning frameworks – declarative and imperative frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch. After a broad overview of frameworks, you will be introduced to the PyTorch framework in more detail. We will discuss your perspective as a researcher and a user, formalizing the needs of research workflows (covering data pre-processing and loading, model building, etc.). Then, we shall see how the different features of PyTorch map to helping you with these workflows.
