MXNet is a fully featured, flexibly programmable, and ultra-scalable deep learning framework supporting state of the art deep learning models. It provides both low-level-control and high-level APIs that allow developers to mix imperative and symbolic programming models and to code in their language of choice (including Python, Scala, Java, C++ and R). Besides its computational and memory efficiency, MXNet is lightweight and portable and can run on various systems including edge devices. It supports distributed training on multi-GPUs across multiple hosts and achieves high scalability.

Powering Tensorflow with Big Data: A look at Apache Beam & Apache Spark for Tensorflow
This talk will explore how to use TensorFlow in conjunction with Apache Spark, Flink, and Beam to create a full machine learning pipeline — including feature engineering and data prep components that many might prefer to pretend don’t exist. This talk will look at tools like TensorFlowOnSpark, TFX / TFT / TFDV, and the challenges of integrating data prep into serving. We'll wrap up by examining changing industry trends, like Apache Arrow, and how they impact cross-language development for things like deep learning.
