    Parallel Barnes-Hut t-SNE implementation written in Rust.

    bhtsne now supports parallelism, custom data types and custom user defined metrics.

  • GitHub repo neuronika

    Tensors and dynamic neural networks in pure Rust.

    After reading most of the book, I wanted to get my hands dirty. My initial idea was to build a small machine learning framework but I deemed it to be too difficult if not impossible for me at the time. (Now, neuronika would have something to say). When gathering the bibliography for my thesis, I recalled to have stumbled upon a particular algorithm, t-SNE, whom I liked very much. I found the idea behind it to be very clever and elegant (t-SNE it's still one of my favorite algorithms, together with backprop and SOM, I find manifold learning fascinating in general). "So be it", I said, and I began writing a mess of a code, that was basically a translation of the C++ implementation. Boy was it bad.
