Facebook open sources tools for bigger, faster deep learning models — Tech News and Analysis

'Facebook on Friday open sourced a handful of software libraries that it claims will help users build bigger, faster deep learning models than existing tools allow.

The libraries, which Facebook is calling modules, are alternatives for the default ones in a popular machine learning development environment called Torch, and are optimized to run on Nvidia graphics processing units. Among the modules are those designed to rapidly speed up training for large computer vision systems (nearly 24 times, in some cases), to train systems on potentially millions of different classes (e.g., predicting whether a word will appear across a large number of documents, or whether a picture was taken in any city anywhere), and an optimized method for building language models and word embeddings (e.g., knowing how different words are related to each other).

Fun article on Netflix, their recommendations ("Believe it or not, Hunt thinks the importance of Netflix’s recommendation engine is actually underestimated"), and their internal software engineering culture ("Think of it as, roughly, every second or third day there is a measurable improvement in the quality of what we deliver to our customers").
