protoNN: developing neural models made easy


  • Transparent and elastic scheduling of DNN training jobs on modern HPC systems.
  • Monitoring and visualizing model parameters and computational performance statistics.
  • Semi-automatic hyperparameter tuning/optimization and architecture search.
  • A user-defined interactive interface to drive the framework/ design process, not bound to any particular framework
  • Scaling the functionality and performance

vecto: building and evaluating text representations


and lot's of other tools for NLP applications with emphasis on reproducibility
