+ User-friendly API;

+ Modular and extendable;

+ Supports multiple backend neural computation engines;

- Performance can sometimes be suboptimal;

- Dependency on TensorFlow or Theano as a backend.


An open-source numerical computation library that lets developers efficiently define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions.

Languages: Python

Platforms: Linux, macOS X, Windows

+ Highly efficient for numerical tasks;
