Amazon open sources its product recommendation tech

Machine learning isn’t just about researchers digging into hypotheticals in sterile labs. Major corporations use this kind of artificial intelligence to help with the complexities of serving a massive, often international audience — and now Amazon is making its machine learning software open source.The company’s Deep Scalable Sparse Tensor Network Engine — otherwise known as DSSTNE and pronounced “destiny” — is now available to anyone who’s interested in tinkering with it. Amazon hopes that outside influences will help make the platform even more powerful than it already is, according to a report from Engadget. “DSSTNE is built for production deployment of real-world deep learning applications, emphasizing speed and scale over experimental flexibility,” reads documentation that accompanies the files released by Amazon.
