Microsoft Moves Its AI Toolkit On GitHub [VIDEO]

Microsoft is seeking to spread usage of artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning software by moving its open source Computational Network Toolkit (CNTK) on GitHub. Since April 2015, CNTK has been available via open source but under a more-restrictive license. Now, Microsoft made it available to any developer with an MIT license. The kit provides a high performance unified computational network framework that describes deep neural networks as a series of computational steps. According to a Microsoft blog post by Allison Linn, Microsoft Research developed out of necessity the CNTK open source toolkit with the aim to make faster improvements to computer speech recognition software. Previous tools such as Torch 7, Theano, Caffe and TensorFlow were slowing down the research. Microsoft Research internal tests come to found CNTK more efficient. By moving its open…
