Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays efficiently. Theano features:

  • tight integration with NumPy – Use numpy.ndarray in Theano-compiled functions.
  • transparent use of a GPU – Perform data-intensive computations much faster than on a CPU.
  • efficient symbolic differentiation – Theano does your derivatives for functions with one or many inputs.
  • speed and stability optimizations – Get the right answer for log(1+x) even when x is really tiny.
  • dynamic C code generation – Evaluate expressions faster.
  • extensive unit-testing and self-verification – Detect and diagnose many types of errors.
