[D] “Keras is a minimalist, highly modular neural network library in the spirit of Torch”
Given the recent controversy of who inspired who: https://twitter.com/fchollet/status/1132713291757711361
Let’s look at one of the early README’s of Keras itself: https://web.archive.org/web/20150522055317/https://github.com/fchollet/keras
Keras is a minimalist, highly modular neural network library in the spirit of Torch, written in Python / Theano so as not to have to deal with the dearth of ecosystem in Lua. It was developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. Being able to go from idea to result with the least possible delay is key to doing good research.
Some people forget the history of torch, one of the original deep learning libraries which inspired many libraries thereafter.
