Trax Programming Language

Why do you use Trax (instead of TensorFlow) in the NLP Specialization? Is this a new programming language that we have to learn if we take the course?

Hi @JohnnyPizzaiolo,

Trax is not a pre-req to these courses. You’ll learn about it along the way, as it will be taught in the courses.

And the reason for using Trax is that it is much lighter than TensorFlow.
