Neural Network Framework
Version 12 completes its high-level neural network framework in terms of functionality, while improving its simplicity and performance. A variety of new layers and encoders have been added, in particular, to handle sequential data such as text or audio. Importantly, a model repository is introduced, bringing a collection of pre-trained networks to be used as is, symbolically manipulated, or fine-tuned to a specific task. Finally, performance has been improved for most hardware configurations, including the possibility to train using multiple graphic cards. This framework is arguably the easiest existing tool to build neural network applications, yet with broad capabilities and without performance compromise.
