Microsoft has announced it is open sourcing its extension of TensorFlow for Windows. The source code for TensorFlow-DirectML is now available on GitHub.

“TensorFlow-DirectML broadens the reach of TensorFlow beyond its traditional Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) support, by enabling high-performance training and inferencing of machine learning models on any Windows devices with a DirectX 12-capable GPU through DirectML, a hardware accelerated deep learning API on Windows,” wrote Microsoft’s senior program manager Clarke Rahrig, senior software engineer Justin Stoecker, and principal software engineer lead Chai Chaoweeraprasit.
