On this roadmap document:
I found the following suggestion:
Autograd is an interesting area. Currently there are no good JVM autograd options. To get this to work would be exciting for many users.
Now this has changed a lot, we now have:
- SameDiff (a subsidiary of dl4j, written in Java)
- Kotlingrad: https://github.com/breandan/kotlingrad (scheduled for NeurIPS 2019, written in Kotlin)
- Latern: https://github.com/feiwang3311/Lantern (written in Scala)
- Nexus: https://github.com/ctongfei/nexus (written in Scala)
The suggestion should be re-evaluated and requirements for prototype should be defined. Is any one working on this? Who should I ask for mandate if I’m interested in contributing?
