## Description

The current version of scarlet (v0.5) requires a package that can calculate automatic gradients. The autograd was chosen as the package to calculate automatic gradients in scarlet because it is very robust and effective, developed at the HIPS group in the Harvard C.S department (now LIPS at Princeton), and also very lightweight, with only a dozen or so modules and only two dependencies: numpy and future, both of which are already included in the stack.
