2.1 Introducing PyTorch
What we covered in this video lecture
In this lecture, we introduce PyTorch. PyTorch is an open-source library for deep learning library that is widely used in both academia and industry. PyTorch originated from the original Torch project, a deep learning framework based on the programming language Lua. In the upcoming videos, we will dive deeper into PyTorch’s tensor data structure before implementing and training deep neural networks.
