摘要
Deep Learning techniques have been prevalent in various domains, and more and more open source projects in GitHub rely on deep learning libraries to implement their algorithms. To that end, they should always keep pace with the latest versions of deep learning libraries to make the best use of deep learning libraries. Aptly managing the versions of deep learning libraries can help projects avoid crashes or security issues caused by deep learning libraries. Unfortunately, very few studies have been done on the dependency networks of deep learning libraries. In this paper, we take the first step to perform an exploratory study on the dependency networks of deep learning libraries, namely, Tensorflow, PyTorch, and Theano. We study the project purposes, application domains, dependency degrees, update behaviors and reasons as well as version distributions of deep learning projects that depend on Tensorflow, PyTorch, and Theano. Our study unveils some commonalities in various aspects (e.g., purposes, application domains, dependency degrees) of deep learning libraries and reveals some discrepancies as for the update behaviors, update reasons, and the version distributions. Our findings highlight some directions for researchers and also provide suggestions for deep learning developers and users.
