I agree with Anirudh about the confusion with the name. Also, if someone hasn’t heard about "MXNet" , they could confuse it with another model like "AlexNet", "GoogleNet"
Not sure about the feasibility of doing it at this point . On 4/11/18, 11:10 AM, "Anirudh" <anirudh2...@gmail.com> wrote: Hi Chris, In my opinion, the problem with MXNet is the way it is pronounced. I think this leads to confusion, as I have seen people unaware of the fw from before, grasp it as "Amexnet". The way it was supposed to be pronounced "mixnet" sounded like a good name to me. I am not sure why the i in the middle was removed though. Having said that, I don't think it would be feasible to change the name at this stage, considering the confusion and the marketing nightmare. I cannot recall of other popular open source projects of having changed their names without an impact.
