  • Standardizing a Machine Learning Framework for Applied Research –
    PyTorch vs MXNet

    Until now, the Machine Learning (ML) frameworks we’ve used at Borealis AI have varied according to individual preference. But as our applied team grows, we’re finding that a preference-based system has certain shortcomings that have led to inefficiencies and delays in our research projects.
