NAME

AI::MXNet - Perl interface to MXNet machine learning library

SYNOPSIS

    ## Convolutional NN for recognizing hand-written digits in MNIST dataset
    ## It's considered "Hello, World" for Neural Networks
    ## For more info about the MNIST problem please refer to http://neuralnetworksanddeeplearning.com/chap1.html

DESCRIPTION

    Perl interface to MXNet machine learning library.

BUGS AND INCOMPATIBILITIES

Parity with Python inteface is not yet achieved. Pod mostly contains Python documentation taken as is. This is WIP.
