Subject RE: Remove MKLML as dependency
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2018 02:48:49 GMT
Hi Alex,

Thanks for bringing this up.

The original intention of MKLML is to provide a light and easy-to-access library for ML/DL
community. It's released with MKL-DNN under Apache-2.0 license.

AFAIK, MKL-DNN still relies on it for better performance. So I'm afraid there will be a performance
regression in MKL pip packages if MKLML is simply removed.

Have you ever tried the build without MKLML and how does the performance look like?

On our build from source page we have a list of blas libraries that are recommended:

Apple Accelerate

MKLML is a subset of MKL (
and therefore MKLML users can just use MKL instead. Does anyone see an issue with me removing
this? It would simplify out doc page and build file.
