What is PyTorch (in 60 Seconds or Fewer)?
PyTorch is Facebook's open source machine learning framework. It was popularized in research in academia, but increasingly has been used in production models.
PyTorch is useful because it contains a lot of the core building blocks that you might need to implement deep learning models, whether you're doing natural image processing, computer vision, audio processing, or more. For example, Detectron2 is actually a framework built on top of PyTorch for implementing computer vision models. Because it's open source, the community continues to maintain it, grow, and really gets better by the day.
