Alex Matthews awarded by Google for his work on TensorFlow

Alex Matthews has been given a software award from the Google Open Source Programs Office for his work on TensorFlow. The award is for “…people outside of Google that they thought were doing great things in the world of open source”, in particular for his work implementing Cholesky backpropagation. The work removes one of the main barriers to implementing Gaussian processes in TensorFlow and is part of the ongoing GPflow project.
