The high-level view of deep learning is elegant: composing differentiable components together trained in an end-to-end fashion. The reality isn't that simple, and the commonly used tools greatly limit what we are capable of doing. Diogo Almeida explains what we can do about it and offers a practical attempt at a deep learning library of the future. Read more.
