Automatic Gradients with PyTorch

Let’s see how we can compute automatic gradients with PyTorch and how PyTorch is different from plain Python and NumPy.

Creating a tensor with requires_grad=True argument

The following code creates a tensor called x just like before, but this time we give PyTorch an additional option requires_grad=True. We’ll see very soon what this option does.

Run the code to see what printing x does.
