Why we built an open source, distributed training framework for TensorFlow , Keras , and PyTorch:

At Uber, we apply deep learning across our business; from self-driving research to trip forecasting and fraud prevention, deep learning enables our engineers and data scientists to create better experiences for our users.

TensorFlow has become a preferred deep learning library at Uber for a variety of reasons. To start, the framework is one of the most widely used open source frameworks for deep learning, which makes it easy to onboard new users. It also combines high performance with an ability to tinker with low-level model details鈥攆or instance, we can use both high-level APIs, such as Keras, and implement our own custom operators using NVIDIA鈥檚 CUDA toolkit.

Uber has introduced Michelangelo (, an internal ML-as-a-service platform that democratizes machine learning and makes it easy to build and deploy these systems at scale. In this article, we pull back the curtain on Horovod, an open source component of Michelangelo鈥檚 deep learning toolkit which makes it easier to start鈥攁nd speed up鈥攄istributed deep learning projects with TensorFlow:

Keras Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Keras?
PyTorch is not a Python binding into a monolothic C++ framework. It is built to be deeply integrated into Python. You can use it naturally like you would use numpy / scipy / scikit-learn etc.
TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.
scikit-learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and distributed under the 3-Clause BSD license.
ML Kit
ML Kit brings Google鈥檚 machine learning expertise to mobile developers in a powerful and easy-to-use package.
A parallel computing platform and application programming interface model,it enables developers to speed up compute-intensive applications by harnessing the power of GPUs for the parallelizable part of the computation.
