Why Google Open Sourced Deep Learning Library TensorFlow

Google last week open sourced TensorFlow, a new machine learning library used in deep learning projects. Even though the Web giant has just started using the software in its products, it apparently felt the need to donate it to the world. But why?TensorFlow was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization for the purpose of conducting research into deep neural networks, Google says on the TensorFlow website. “TensorFlow is a machine learning library that’s used across Google for applying deep learning to a lot of different areas,” says Rajat Mongo, a technical lead on the TensorFlow project, in a YouTube video. At a technical level, TensorFlow facilitates numerical computation by using data flow graphs. According to Google (now a…
