torch: Tensors and Neural Networks with 'GPU' Acceleration

Provides functionality to define and train neural networks similar to 'PyTorch' by Paszke et al (2019) <arXiv:1912.01703> but written entirely in R using the 'libtorch' library. Also supports low-level tensor operations and 'GPU' acceleration.
