Microsoft says its toolkit is “more efficient” than other solutions used to create deep learning models. Microsoft is following Google’s lead and making its deep learning tools a whole lot more accessible. The software giant has open sourced its Computational Network Toolkit, or CNTK, which the company says is “more efficient” than four other popular solutions used to create deep learning models for things like speech and image recognition — including Google’s recently open-sourced TensorFlow. Now, the toolkit is available via GitHub for anyone who wants to use it, from deep learning start-ups to more established companies processing huge amounts of data in real time. “The CNTK toolkit is just insanely more efficient than anything we have ever seen,” Microsoft’s Chief Speech Scientist, Xuedong Huang, said in a statement, adding that…
