Theano Citation Policy¶
If you use Theano for academic research, you are highly encouraged (though not required) to cite the following paper:
- Theano Development Team. “Theano: A Python framework for fast computation of mathematical expressions”.
Theano is primarily developed by academics, and so citations matter a lot to us. As an added benefit, you increase Theano’s exposure and potential user (and developer) base, which is to the benefit of all users of Theano. Thanks in advance!
Previously, we asked users of Theano to cite the two papers below. However, many members of our community have contributed to Theano in the meantime, and it is inconvenient to cite multiple papers. We intend to introduce new papers periodically, and only ask for users to cite the single most recent paper with the most comprehensive author list.
- F. Bastien, P. Lamblin, R. Pascanu, J. Bergstra, I. Goodfellow, A. Bergeron, N. Bouchard, D. Warde-Farley and Y. Bengio. “Theano: new features and speed improvements”. NIPS 2012 deep learning workshop. (BibTeX)
