Theano: Theano Python Language Library

Goal In this ongoing summary we give a first introduction to the theano library, its basic functionality and usage in th field neural networks. Motivation The need for such a library is based on easily handling tensorial objects, like multi-array input data and weights in neural networks. Of particular interest are symbolic operations that can perform differentiation as need for the backpropagation algorithm in order to update the models according to the seen training data. A core functionality of libraries nowadays is to make use of GPUs in order to efficiently distribute the huge amount of computing operations. Ingredients symbolic operations, numpy, python Steps The theano library is an open source project lead by a machine learning group associated with […]
