Author: Soumith Chintala

What is PyTorch?

PyTorch is a Python-based scientific computing package serving two broad purposes:

  • A replacement for NumPy to use the power of GPUs and other accelerators.

  • An automatic differentiation library that is useful to implement neural networks.

Goal of this tutorial:

  • Understand PyTorch’s Tensor library and neural networks at a high level.

  • Train a small neural network to classify images


Make sure you have the torch and torchvision packages installed.
