New faster and more efficient TensorFlow runtime now is Open Source
A new runtime for TensorFlow machine learning framework that provides a high performance across a range of hardware, now is publicly available tensorflow/runtime under Apache License 2.0 Google says that the benefits of new TensorFlow RunTime (TFRT) will be for a broad range of users:
- Researchers looking for faster iteration time and better error reporting when developing complex new models in eager mode.
- Application developers looking for improved performance when training and serving models in production.
- Hardware makers looking to integrate edge and datacenter devices into TensorFlow in a modular way.
Also Google says that the benchmarking study for TensorFlow Dev Summit 2020 shows performance improvement over the current runtime by 28% on average.
