Amazon says DSSTNE (which stands for Deep Scalable Sparse Tensor Network Engine and is pronounced “Destiny”) excels in situations where there isn’t a lot of data to train the machine-learning system, whereas TensorFlow is geared for handling tons of data. DSSTNE is also faster than TensorFlow, with Amazon claiming up to 2.1 times the speed in low-data situations. The software comes from Amazon’s need to make recommendations in its retail platform, which required the company to develop neural network programs.
