@beniz Alright, that seems fair. Just out of curiosity, what other open source REST APIs are there? I found another one but it was an incomplete and dead project that also relied completely upon couchbase for no reason.

If you look for 'deep learning server' or 'machine learning server' you'll find a few others
so @sixsamuraisoldier do you have any contact at AMD ?

so FYI, I've been inquiring for a contact at AMD regarding OpenCL, and I'll keep the issue updated. It won't happen before a couple of months though.

@beniz Unfortunately I do not, however I did find this recent new initiative: https://bitbucket.org/multicoreware/hccaffe
This indicates that AMD is looking to push into deep learning, and it is from the GPUOPEN page.
If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that it was an AMD funded project, perhaps you could look into that?

yes it is part of http://gpuopen.com
I've got a contact, I'll talk to them over the next few months.
regarding a merge of our patches and the opencl Caffe branch, I thought about it and in fact it should be done by bringing in our patches to the branch I think, in case the cuda and opencl branch are not compatible

fyi it's Tesla and Intel and Qualcomm maintaining the Caffe opencl branch AFAIK now.

At the moment (next 2-3 months), I'll be pretty busy though, working on my DL research.
Huh, yeah I heard something similar from the previous AMD branch maintainers on github.
Seems like their focused on moving to HiP or ROCm, etc.

are you a student ?
