Facebook has announced that it will open source deep learning modules for the Torch artificial intelligence project. This could speed up technology and make it more accessible to developers and ultimately companies. This interesting information came from DATAVERSITY in their article, “Facebook Open Sources AI Tools, Increasing Access to Deep Learning.”

The social networking legend has a long open source contribution history and has even released documentation on its data center designs and building blocks. By contributing its optimized deep-learning modules and other tools, Facebook could empower numerics, machine learning, and computer vision.

With social media comes collaboration. What is more collaborative than open source? Having a strategy that focuses on the problems people want to solve or the capabilities they want to support, and allowing experimental approaches can result in dynamic results.
