## PyTorch’s AutoGrad

PyTorch’s AutoGrad is a very powerful feature with which we can easily find the differentiation of a variable with respect to another. This comes handy while calculating gradients for gradient descent algorithm

## How to use this feature

first and foremost , let’s import the necessary libraries

```
#importing the libraries
import torch
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import random
x = torch.tensor(5.) #some data
w = torch.tensor(4.,requires_grad=True) #weight ( slope )
b = torch.tensor(2.,requires_grad=True) #bias (intercept)
y = x*w + b #equation of a line
y.backward() #letting pytorch know that Y is the variable that needs to be differentiated
print(w.grad,b.grad) #prints the derivative of Y with respect to w and b
output:
tensor(5.) tensor(1.)
```

This is the basic idea behind PyTorch’s AutoGrad.

the** backward()** function specify the variable to be differentiated

and the .**grad** prints the differentiation of that function with respect to the variable.
