What does Pyro mean?


#1

In Pyro, through tutorials, I found that i in irange or iarange means “independent”. And poutine means Pyro Coroutine. But what does Pyro mean? I guess it is “Python Random Operator/Operation/Object”? ^^


#2

that’s an interesting theory… the name is just playing on the fact that pyro is written in python and built on top of pytorch. pyro/πυρ means fire in greek.
