Stan vs TensorFlow: What are the differences?
What is Stan? A Probabilistic Programming Language. A state-of-the-art platform for statistical modeling and high-performance statistical computation. Used for statistical modeling, data analysis, and prediction in the social, biological, and physical sciences, engineering, and business.
What is TensorFlow? 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.
Stan and TensorFlow can be primarily classified as "Machine Learning" tools.
Stan is an open source tool with 1.61K GitHub stars and 279 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Stan's open source repository on GitHub.
I have just started learning some basic machine learning concepts. So which of the following frameworks is better to use: Keras / TensorFlow/PyTorch. I have prior knowledge in python(and even pandas), java, js and C. It would be nice if something could point out the advantages of one over the other especially in terms of resources, documentation and flexibility. Also, could someone tell me where to find the right resources or tutorials for the above frameworks? Thanks in advance, hope you are doing well!!
