DeepMind AI Group Moves to TensorFlow

29 April 2016, USA : Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence (AI) research group today announced that for all future research it will use TensorFlow, a machine learning library that Google open-sourced last year, instead of Torch, an older framework. The move suggests that some of Google’s brightest AI minds are convinced of the promise of Google’s own open source software; TensorFlow is now good enough for DeepMind. “We believe that TensorFlow will enable us to execute our ambitious research goals at much larger scale and an even faster pace, providing us with a unique opportunity to further accelerate our research programme,” Koray Kavukcuoglu, a research scientist at Google DeepMind and one of Torch’s core contributors, wrote in a blog post. This is important because of DeepMind’s considerable capabilities — earlier this…
