In this talk, we will cover PyTorch, a new deep learning framework that enables new-age A.I. research using dynamic computation graphs. We shall look at the architecture of PyTorch and discuss some of the reasons for key decisions in designing it and subsequently look at the resulting improvements in user experience and performance.


Soumith Chintala is a Researcher at Facebook AI Research, where he works on deep learning, reinforcement learning, generative image models, agents for video games and large-scale high-performance deep learning. He holds a Masters in CS from NYU, and spent time in Yann LeCun’s NYU lab building deep learning models for pedestrian detection, natural image OCR, depth-images among others.
