I am developing my own implementation -in c++ mpi and openmp- of a biologically accurate hierarchical cortical memory structure. I am trying to apply such cortical model to early phonetic acquisition.
Yet, the other day a colleague came up with a question I was not able to answer in a sound way.
The question was. Why didn’t you implement your model in TensorFlow or Caffe?
I couldn’t answer his question well, perhaps because I am used to develop applications from scratch. I don’t have a great knowledge about TensorFlow either, and I don’t know about the flexibility that such kind of tools could provide in developments like mine or yours.
Then I remembered the people from Numenta and the fact that you have implemented your application from scratch too.
So, I move the question to you:
Why didn’t you implement your model in TensorFlow or Caffe?
