Google open sources Deep Learning algorithm, TensorFlow

TensorFlow is a second generation Deep Learning algorithm from Google, used by its engineers for its core services. Google announced yesterday that its Deep Learning algorithm, TensorFlow, has been open-sourced. According to Google, this is the second generation machine learning algorithm, with the first one being called DistBelief. The company’s blog post said, “TensorFlow is general, flexible, portable, easy-to-use, and completely open source. We added all this while improving upon DistBelief’s speed, scalability, and production readiness — in fact, on some benchmarks, TensorFlow is twice as fast as DistBelief.” Deep Learning is a branch of machine learning that is loosely based on neural networks, and how the human brain works. Further, the post also said, “TensorFlow has extensive built-in support for deep learning, but is far more general than that…
