As a newcomer of deep learning, I got to choose what framework(s) is more convenient to learn first.
Now, fast.ai part1 uses theano, part2 uses TF, the lectures are awesome (I’m a lecture 5-1 as of now), and the fact that we use keras makes us fairly framework-independent, but I’m wondering whether TF really is the best choice for a second course in DL, since even using keras one could leverage framework-specific features, and mxnet seems to be superior.
Indeed, I stumbled in that post which left me a bit surprised:
mxnet seems to be the advanced framework of choice for a production environment, while conceding a bit about flexibility to TF when it comes to frontline reasearch.
I’d like to hear opinions from both fast.ai team and you all.
