Preview Release: Intel® Nervana™ Graph

The field of deep learning is moving at a rapid pace.  Practitioners need tools that are flexible enough to keep up. Theano popularized the notion of computational graphs as a powerful abstraction, and more recently, TensorFlow iterated on that concept. Together, they demonstrate some first steps in unlocking the potential of deep learning, but we…
