Hi Charlie

It certainly looks like exciting project, but the bar is currently placed
very high.
TensorFlow package not only provides automatic differentiation for whole
programs, but also optimizes data processing both on GPU, and reading to
achieve large batches.
This field has a lot of hot developments, so You would either need to
propose something unique to Haskell, or You risk being outclassed by
PyTorch and TensorFlow bindings
  Maybe Dominic suggests something too.
