"Torch - if you like lua you will love torch"

What do you like best?

Torch is very easy to incorporate, and at the same time highly flexible. The ease of use and flexibility allows rapid prototyping of components. Allowing people to conduct research at fast pace, develop ideas more quickly while not being bogged down by implementation details. At same time it allows us to dig deeper and understand fundamentals, making the learning loop faster and more effective.

What do you dislike?

I think biggest issue is the dependence on lua. Newer implementation of pytorch removes this issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use torch if you want to use lua for deep learning. Use pytorch if you are interested in using python

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Torch helped me accelerate the research output, I was able to develop neural networks faster and understand their inner working better.

"Torch scientific computing framwerok for Luajit Machine Learning"

What do you like best?

the best of Torch is their performance capability that can reach almost 80% of C with JIT, also the LUA can use C libraries directly, other feature amazing is the GPU support. The neural networks are the new way of tracking peoples with simmilar search pattern and the Torch provide all of do you need for do it.

What do you dislike?

An negative point of TORCH is that it need LuaJIT environment when it runs and it's slowing down the go to large-scale production.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

the TORCH will should be incorporate an feature that allow to use the LuaJit scripts without the LuaJit environment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

in our organization TORCH has solved the automatization of some process, through LUAJIT lenguaje and the compatibility with existents script based on C.

What Artificial Neural Network solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"It's a good computing framework with lots of powerful features"

What do you like best?

I like the machine learning library and torch library for scientific computing

What do you dislike?

There is nothing specific I can mention here

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am trying to solve machine learning problems. I have realized that Torch is pretty fast and has all features I need.
