Faster and More Powerful Open Source Frameworks

The open source PyTorch, created by Soumith Chintala at Facebook, is among the most popular machine learning frameworks used in the world.

In 2018, Google open-sourced its technique for training general purpose language representation models using the enormous amount of unannotated text on the web (known as pre-training). Named Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (or BERT), it is a question answering system that can be trained in about 30 minutes.

Hardware upgrades and faster chips should help make open source frameworks even faster—and popular—in the years to come.
