# TensorFlow

TensorFlow is an end-to-end open source machine learning platform, developed by Google Brain and first made public in 2015. It is very famous for its deep learning functionalities. Its basic data structure is multi-dimensional array, called tensor. The computations are expressed as dataflow graphs, where each node is a mathematical operation and the connecting arrows are tensors.

Its ecosystem is extremely rich, offering many advanced functionalities to developers and researchers, such as:

- plethora of libraries, ranging from probabilistic reasoning to music creation
- tools improving development, debugging, compiling and benchmarking
- officially supported models and datasets

It can run on CPU, GPU and TPU (tensor processing unit). APIs for 13 different programming languages are available, Python being the most complete and the only one covered by the API stability promises.
