Yesterday we announced Swift for TensorFlow, which applies Swift to the domain of machine learning. The intro video is here:
The only additional details available are in a post to our community list, and I encourage you to sign up for the list if you’re interested in this project:
This project is still in early development: it builds on many things about Swift that are already great, and adds a few orthogonal things that combine in some pretty cool ways. To answer a FAQ, we do plan to contribute everything upstream to swift.org through the normal evolution processes when our code becomes mature enough.
Our short term plans are to catch up on sleep, write some white papers about how it all works, then release the white papers and code in April. At that point, we’re happy to go into extensive detail about anything that is interesting, but until then we’d prefer to avoid deep diving on it.
