Google Just Open Sourced TensorFlow, Its Artificial Intelligence Engine | WIRED

See TensorFlow: smarter machine learning, for everyone (Google Blog) and this recent Jeff Dean overview (YouTube video) for more details
"“What we’re hoping is that the community adopts this as a good way of expressing machine learning algorithms of lots of different types, and also contributes to building and improving [TensorFlow] in lots of different and interesting ways,” says Jeff Dean, one of Google’s most important engineers and a key player in the rise of its deep learning tech.

In recent years, other companies and researchers have also made huge strides in this area of AI, including Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter. And some have already open sourced software that’s similar to TensorFlow. This includes Torch—a system originally built by researchers at New York University, many of whom are now at Facebook—as well as systems like Caffe and Theano. But Google’s move is significant. That’s because Google’s AI engine is regarded by some as the world’s most advanced—and because, well, it’s Google."
