Keras vs Swift AI: What are the differences?
What is Keras? Deep Learning library for Theano and TensorFlow. Deep Learning library for Python. Convnets, recurrent neural networks, and more. Runs on TensorFlow or Theano. https://keras.io/.
What is Swift AI? A.I. and machine learning library written in Swift. Swift AI is a high-performance AI and machine learning library written entirely in Swift. We currently support iOS and OS X, with support for more platforms coming soon!.
Keras and Swift AI can be primarily classified as "Machine Learning" tools.
Keras and Swift AI are both open source tools. It seems that Keras with 42.5K GitHub stars and 16.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Swift AI with 5.58K GitHub stars and 542 GitHub forks.
For my company, we may need to classify image data. Keras provides a high-level Machine Learning framework to achieve this. Specifically, CNN models can be compactly created with little code. Furthermore, already well-proven classifiers are available in Keras, which could be used as Transfer Learning for our use case.
We chose Keras over PyTorch, another Machine Learning framework, as our preliminary research showed that Keras is more compatible with .js. You can also convert a PyTorch model into TensorFlow.js, but it seems that Keras needs to be a middle step in between, which makes Keras a better choice.
