Comet.ml vs TensorFlow: What are the differences?

Developers describe Comet.ml as "Track, compare and collaborate on Machine Learning experiments". Comet.ml allows data science teams and individuals to automagically track their datasets, code changes, experimentation history and production models creating efficiency, transparency, and reproducibility. On the other hand, TensorFlow is detailed as "Open Source Software Library for Machine Intelligence". 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.

Comet.ml and TensorFlow can be categorized as "Machine Learning" tools.

Decisions about Comet.ml and TensorFlow

Pytorch is a famous tool in the realm of machine learning and it has already set up its own ecosystem. Tutorial documentation is really detailed on the official website. It can help us to create our deep learning model and allowed us to use GPU as the hardware support.

I have plenty of projects based on Pytorch and I am familiar with building deep learning models with this tool. I have used TensorFlow too but it is not dynamic. Tensorflow works on a static graph concept that means the user first has to define the computation graph of the model and then run the ML model, whereas PyTorch believes in a dynamic graph that allows defining/manipulating the graph on the go. PyTorch offers an advantage with its dynamic nature of creating graphs.

For data analysis, we choose a Python-based framework because of Python's simplicity as well as its large community and available supporting tools. We choose PyTorch over TensorFlow for our machine learning library because it has a flatter learning curve and it is easy to debug, in addition to the fact that our team has some existing experience with PyTorch. Numpy is used for data processing because of its user-friendliness, efficiency, and integration with other tools we have chosen. Finally, we decide to include Anaconda in our dev process because of its simple setup process to provide sufficient data science environment for our purposes. The trained model then gets deployed to the back end as a pickle.

    What are some alternatives to Comet.ml and TensorFlow?
    MLflow
    MLflow is an open source platform for managing the end-to-end machine learning lifecycle.
    PyTorch
    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.
    Keras
    Deep Learning library for Python. Convnets, recurrent neural networks, and more. Runs on TensorFlow or Theano. https://keras.io/
    scikit-learn
    scikit-learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and distributed under the 3-Clause BSD license.
    CUDA
    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.
