The Good, Bad, & Ugly of TensorFlow

The Good, Bad, and Ugly of #TensorFlow. #BigData #DeepLearning #MachineLearning  #AI

  • If you are deploying a model to a cloud environment, you want to know that your model can execute on the hardware available to it, without unpredictable interactions with other code that may access the same hardware.
  • For example, the Udacity tutorials and the RNN tutorial using Penn TreeBank data to build a language model are very illustrative, thanks to their simplicity.
  • For me, holding mental context for a new framework and model I’m building to solve a hard problem is already pretty taxing, so it can be really helpful to inspect a totally different representation of a model; the TensorBoard graph visualization is great for this.
  • But good programmers know it is much harder to write code that humans will use, versus code that a machine can compile and execute.
  • We appreciate their strategy of integrating new features and tests first so early adopters can try things before they are documented.

A survey of six months rapid evolution (+ tips/hacks and code to fix the ugly stuff) from Dan Kuster, one of indico’s deep learning researchers.
