PyBrain for Students
If you're looking for a machine learning library to use for your projects, you probably won't need to look further!
Pybrain allows you to build complex and custom network architectures, and use state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms and apply them directly to your problem - you don't need to understand the algorithms to use them, and all components have default parameter settings that should be general-purpose and robust.
Just take the latest stable version from the download page, watch the video on the features page to get a quick introduction to PyBrain, skim over a couple of tutorials and examples in the documentation section and get started immediately. The community of PyBrain developers is an active one, and will probably be able to help you overcome most problems.
