Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Rebrand Gluon to MXNet imperative or something MXNet.
Date Sat, 23 Mar 2019 01:05:49 GMT
@Junru Thanks for the clarification. Given that we already have courseware
and books with Gluon, it makes sense to brand “Mxnet Gluon” with Gluon
being the high level API of mxnet

@Tianqi what’s the roadmap of GluonNLP/GluonCV? Are they positioned to be
high level API of MXnet or some plug-and-play components that could
potentially be put on top of other frameworks in the future? If the former,
should we always highlight Mxnet whenever we advertise GluonNLP?
