Leverages Rust's memory safety and concurrency features for enhanced performance with security.



Features a clearly defined and extensively documented modeling API.



Includes a dynamic computational graph with a custom just-in-time compiler for enhanced flexibility and efficiency.

Backend CPU / GPU


Offers multiple backend implementations with support for both CPU and GPU.

Batteries Included


Provides comprehensive support for logging, metrics, and checkpointing during model training.

Community Driven


Open-source from the outset, backed by a vibrant and dedicated community.

What for?

Whatever you're up to.

Looking to develop an AI application? Burn enables you to train and deploy your model on mobile devices, browsers, desktops, embedded systems, or large GPU clusters. Engaged in fundamental research? There's no need to master GPU programming to optimize your code; we handle that for you, so you can concentrate on your research.

Crafted from scratch using Rust … ?

Burn introduces a unique architecture based on tensor operation streams, fully optimized at runtime and auto-tuned for your hardware by a just-in-time compiler.

This approach relies on Rust's ownership rules to precisely track tensor usage, a feature unattainable without a robust type system. It enables you to create highly dynamic models with the performance of an extensively optimized static graph.
