Facebook PyTorch 1 release Python machine learning with native code

(Last Updated On: October 4, 2018)

Facebook will be pushing out a new version of PyTorch It seems to be the second most popular machine learning framework out there. It include Python machine learning native code.

Torch Script works one of two ways. New code can be written using the Torch Script language, which by design can compile readily to native code. It’s also possible to take existing Python code, decorate it with the @torch.jit.trace decorator, and have it just-in-time compiled to native code. However, this is not as effective as using Torch Script….

Another commonly used package, Cython, allows Python to be turned incrementally into C by way of custom syntax declarations. Cython can work with the whole range of Python and C types alike, as well as all of Python’s syntax, but Torch Script is restricted to operations on PyTorch tensors, integers, and floating-point numbers. And Torch Script can’t use constructions like exceptions.

Maybe I should I just stick with Tensor Flow 2 coming out in Dec or Jan? It seems to be gaining more popularity vs PyTorch. It should be just as easy to work with for us newbies.

I question the future

I would also like to predict this PyTorch scripting language may be tough to see in the long term. That is is of course with ‘let’s abandon everything’ Microsoft hat on.

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
