Gluon: A new ML library from AWS & Microsoft

Gluon is a new ML library from AWS & Microsoft.

Gluon - AWS Microsoft

Gluon looks like an interesting interface for building NN & ML models. I like the ability to ‘hybridize’ between symbolic representations and ‘imperative’ workflow that are more familiar to many people. From what I can see Gluon should allow everyone to easily speed up writing models in general and still allow researchers to customize/hack one part of the model while leveraging the simplicity of the other common layers.

My group is preparing a paper for submission to the upcoming ICLR 2018. We did all of this work using TensorFlow, but it would have been interesting to do our research using Gluon/MXNet (or the upcoming Gluon/Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit).
