  Description     : Python library to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays

Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and
evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays
efficiently. Theano features:
 * tight integration with numpy – Use numpy.ndarray in Theano-compiled functions.
 * transparent use of a GPU – Perform data-intensive calculations up to 140x faster than with CPU.
 * symbolic differentiation – Let Theano do your derivatives.
 * speed and stability optimizations – Get the right answer for log(1+x) even when x is really tiny.
 * dynamic C code generation – Evaluate expressions faster.
 * extensive unit-testing and self-verification – Detect and diagnose many types of mistake.

Subject: GPU code execution?
Date: Tue, 10 Dec 2013 10:34:03 +0100
Theano seems a very interesting piece of software. Notice however that
in order to have GPU code generation/execution, NVidia SDK is required.¹

So a theano package in Debian would either miss this functionality
(without which Theano looses a relevant part of its appeal), or be
confined to "contrib".

This unless... I'm not missing something: opencl _is_ cited as supported
in another page!²
