Few days ago Facebook announced Caffe2, a new open-source, cross-platform framework for deep learning. They say that Caffe2 is the successor to Caffe ( really?), the deep learning framework developed by Berkeley AI Research and community contributors. Caffe2’s GitHub page describes it as “an experimental refactoring of Caffe that allows a more flexible way to organize computation.” As my readers know, when appeared TensorFlow I decided to pay attention to it because it could change the scene of DL/AI frameworks. Now, we are in the same situation, Caffe2 could change the current scene that Francesc Sastre, one of my master students,  build for his master thesis:  "Frameworks popularity evolution in GitHub" No questions, right? Facebook launched Caffe2, an open-source deep learning framework made with expression, speed, and modularity in mind. It address the bottlenecks observed [...]
