About this Episode

Flux.jl is Julia's elegant machine learning library, but its API is a little different than Tensorflow or PyTorch. This week on Talk Julia, David and Randy dive into Flux.jl, explore some of the big differences between Flux and Python's machine learning libraries, and offer up some tips and tricks for learning Flux if you're coming to it from another ecosystem.
