Amazon Enters Into Open-source Software World




11 May 2016, USA :

Amazon discreetly released a library called DSSTNE on GitHub under an open-source Apache license and made an entry into the world of open-source software for deep learning.

DSSTNE (pronounced “Destiny”) is an open source software library for training and deploying deep neural networks using GPUs. Amazon engineers built DSSTNE to solve deep learning problems at Amazon’s scale.

DSSTNE is built for production deployment of real-world deep learning applications, emphasizing speed and scale over experimental flexibility.

“DSSTNE’s network definition language is much simpler than Caffe’s, as it would require only 33 lines of code to express the popular AlexNet image recognition model, whereas Caffe’s language requires over 300 lines of code,” Amazon wrote on the FAQ page.
