BigDL. A distributed open-source Apache Spark deep learning library designed for efficient scale-out to multiple nodes. CPU-optimized via MKL. Python support. Only works on CPUs. Developed by Intel.
Cuda-Convnet – A fast C++/CUDA implementation of convolutional (or more generally, feed-forward) neural networks. It can model arbitrary layer connectivity and network depth. Any directed acyclic graph of layers will do. Training is done using the back-propagation algorithm.
RNNLM– Tomas Mikolov’s Recurrent Neural Network based Language models Toolkit.
RNNLIB-RNNLIB is a recurrent neural network library for sequence learning problems. Applicable to most types of spatiotemporal data, it has proven particularly effective for speech and handwriting recognition.
matrbm. Simplified version of Ruslan Salakhutdinov’s code, by Andrej Karpathy (Matlab).
