Blocks is a framework that helps you build neural network models on top of Theano. Currently it supports and provides:
- Constructing parametrized Theano operations, called "bricks"
- Pattern matching to select variables and bricks in large models
- Algorithms to optimize your model
- Saving and resuming of training
- Monitoring and analyzing values during training progress (on the training set as well as on test sets)
- Application of graph transformations, such as dropout
In the future we also hope to support:
- Dimension, type and axes-checking
- See Also:
- Citing Blocks
