Subject Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - October 2017
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2017 01:48:14 GMT
(trimming CC since asking a specific question)

John -- how would you like to handle Gossip's lack of report? It seems 
like despite my pestering, no one on the ppmc is creating one.

I can try to put one together on their behalf, but I don't want to give 
an impression that they're doing more than they are..

> MXNet
> 
> Apache MXNet is an open-source deep learning framework that allows you to
> define, train, and deploy deep neural networks on a wide array of devices,
> from cloud infrastructure to mobile devices. It is highly scalable,
> allowing for fast model training, and supports a flexible programming model
> and multiple languages. MXNet allows you to mix symbolic and imperative
> programming flavors to maximize both efficiency and productivity. MXNet is
> built on a dynamic dependency scheduler that automatically parallelizes
> both symbolic and imperative operations on the fly. A graph optimization
> layer on top of that makes symbolic execution fast and memory efficient.
> The MXNet library is portable and lightweight, and it scales to multiple
> GPUs and multiple machines.
> 
> 
> Apache MXNet has been incubating since 2017-01-23.
> 
> The most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
> 
>    1. Establish a predictable release process consistent with Apache Way --
> Ongoing.

>    3. Update project website to Apache standards - In Progress
