Torch7 Library.

Torch7 provides a Matlab-like environment for state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms. It is easy to use and provides a very efficient implementation, thanks to an easy and fast scripting language (Lua) and a underlying C implementation.

In order to install Torch7 you can follow these simple instructions, but we suggest reading the detailed manual at http://www.torch.ch/manual/install/index

  • C/C++ compiler
  • cmake
  • gnuplot
  • git

Optional

  • Readline
  • QT (QT4.8 is now supported)
  • CBLAS
  • LAPACK
