You're right, it is August 2017. I bought it from Amazon UK and they list the date as November 2015 [1] for some reason. I should have checked the book before posting. I've flagged the error with Amazon UK.

For those wondering, why the heck are you guys java:

Our tensor library has a python interface in the making:

Our goal with this will be then to write side by side benchmarks with the other libs that people can easily run. We know a lot of folks from python land won't jump over and we don't expect them to. The hope is that we're equivalent and can integrate better with a big data cluster.

Dl4j is not trying to be TF. When I started dl4j 4 years ago, it was theano and torch as the primary frameworks.

I wrote it for deployment in to production apps and for the hadoop/spark ecosystem.

We will continue that going forward at the eclipse foundation as well as using dl4j in our product.

Please check out the oreilly book as well (currently #2 on amazon right next to the goodfellow book):
