Access to vast amounts of data along with affordable computational power stimulated the reincarnation of neural networks. The progress could not be achieved without adequate software tools, lowering the entry bar for the next generations of researchers and developers. The paper introduces PyTorchPipe (PTP), a framework built on top of PyTorch. Answering the recent needs and trends in machine learning, PTP facilitates building and training of complex, multi-modal models combining language and vision (but is not limited to those two modalities). At its core, PTP employs a component-oriented approach and relies on the concept of a pipeline, defined as a directed acyclic graph of loosely coupled components. A user defines a pipeline using yaml-based (thus human-readable) configuration files, whereas PTP provides generic workers for their loading, training, and testing using all the computational power (CPUs and GPUs) that is available to the user. The paper covers the main concepts of PyTorchPipe, discusses its key features and briefly presents the currently implemented tasks, models and components.
