GNU Octave

GNU OctaveSoftware License / Cost:
GNU General Public License / Free

Brief Description:
GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. Continue Reading

TensorFlow

Tensorflow Software License / Cost: 
Apache 2.0 open source license

Brief Description:
TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API. Continue Reading
