New codename for f4s4tf


(Jeremy Howard (Admin)) #1

It’s possible that f4s4tf didn’t quite flow, linguistically, as well as some famous brands do. So I did extensive market research - I came up with two names and asked @clattner, @sgugger, and @saeta which they liked best. My ideas for code names were:

  • harebrain: because it’s fast (like a hare) and involves google brain, and it’s a crazy idea
  • flat-out: because swift is fast, and fast.ai is fast, and in Aussie slang “flat out” is as fast as you can go.

I can now report our new codename:

harebrain

So now you can all relax at the dev summit knowing that a key piece of the technology stack is in place…
