Oh scratch what I said before, it looks like there isn't an actual GUI associated with this library, despite the graphics on the front page... That makes the pluses of this library a bit less, as the competing packages (scikit-learn, sage, scipy, etc) already cover similar functionalities, albeit not all in one integrated system.

If you are starting with Python, I would recommend first following the basic tutorials they have, then pick a basic project or task you'd like to try (i.e. digitize my handwriting), find a few examples of what approaches other people have used (i.e. RNNs / CNNs ) and work through the basics of loading your images, and training / testing whatever algorithm you choose to try.
