Google Launches TensorFlow as an Open Source Project

The next-generation machine learning system is used across Google’s products, including Google Search, Google Inbox, and its Photos app. Google is open-sourcing TensorFlow, the company’s latest machine learning system that is used across its products and services, including Google Search and the newly released Photos app. An earlier version of deep learning technology, dubbed DistBelief, made it possible for engineers to build larger neural networks. However, configuring the system proved to be difficult, and sharing code externally is almost impossible, writes Jeff Dean, Senior Google Fellow. TensorFlow was developed from the ground up to “right the wrong,” bringing improvements to DistBelief’s speed, scalability, and production-readiness. The second-generation machine learning system is portable, flexible, and easy to use. But Google is upping the ante by making it an open source library…
