There seems to be 2 different autograds in mxnet 0.12.0. I couldnt really find it in the change log for 0.12.0 or 0.12.1:
from mxnet import autograd #has autograd.record() from mxnet.contrib import autograd
Its slightly hard to tell what each one really does… In the scientific python community, we take NumPy’s lead in documenting the init file to describe what each module does. Maybe this is something MXNet can take up?
