Learning PyTorch 2.0 (GitforGits)
Monday, 14 August 2023

This book is a guide to understanding and utilizing PyTorch 2.0 for deep learning applications. Matthew Rosch starts with an introduction to PyTorch, its various advantages over other deep learning frameworks, and its blend with CUDA for GPU acceleration. A substantial portion of the book is dedicated to illustrating how to build simple PyTorch models. This includes uploading and preparing datasets, defining the architecture, training, and predicting. It provides hands-on exercises with a real-world dataset. The book then dives into exploring PyTorch's nn module and gives a detailed comparison of different types of networks like Feedforward, RNN, GRU, CNN, and their combination.
