ml5.js vs PyTorch: What are the differences?
What is ml5.js? Friendly machine learning for the web. ml5.js aims to make machine learning approachable for a broad audience of artists, creative coders, and students. The library provides access to machine learning algorithms and models in the browser, building on top of TensorFlow.js with no other external dependencies.
What is PyTorch? A deep learning framework that puts Python first. 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.
ml5.js and PyTorch can be primarily classified as "Machine Learning" tools.
ml5.js and PyTorch are both open source tools. PyTorch with 29.6K GitHub stars and 7.18K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ml5.js with 2.72K GitHub stars and 213 GitHub forks.

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—for instance, we can use both high-level APIs, such as Keras, and implement our own custom operators using NVIDIA’s CUDA toolkit.
Uber has introduced Michelangelo (https://eng.uber.com/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’s deep learning toolkit which makes it easier to start—and speed up—distributed deep learning projects with TensorFlow:
