The main point is to combine mathematical operation together to form a workflow of choice. The graph takes care of evaluating the gradient of all the inputs to ease up setting up the minimizer. I have aimed for the library to be simple and transparent so that it would be easy to understand and modify to fit individual needs. Currently, supports most of the useful matrix operations, the Adam stochastic minimizer as well as modules for simplified deployment of dense, convolution and recurrent (vanilla and LSTM) networks.

Data Science's Most Used, Confused, and Abused Jargon

@machinelearnbot

In this post, I'll offer a look at data science's buzzwords from multiple perspectives, namely the theorist, the empirical data scientist, and the press release bluster, which too often is parroted by the mainstream press. Data Scientist: Unlike the toy datasets that long dominated machine learning research, today's big data is sufficiently large that it cannot fit conveniently in main memory on a single workstation. In short, big data is more data than can fit in main memory on a single machine. Theorist: Deep neural networks refer to graphical models in which data is computed upon by successive layers of nodes.
