TorchRec, a new Recommender-Systems Library by PyTorch
February 24, 2022
The PyTorch team (and Meta.ai aka Facebook AI team) announced a new software library for recommender systems: TorchRec (GitHub). PyTorch is one of the major Deep Learning libraries, besides TensorFlow and Keras. As such, the announcement of TorchRec is big news for the recommender-systems community. If TorchRec is as powerful for recommendations as is PyTorch for ‘general’ Deep Learning tasks, the library could be very beneficial for recommender-systems developers. We added the library to our list of recommender-systems libraries, and hope to see the first reports on its effectiveness soon.
