Microsoft open sources Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit for more efficient big data research by George Thomas Jr. From the post: Researchers at the Microsoft Asia research lab this week made the Microsoft Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit openly available to the developer community. The toolkit, available now on GitHub, is designed for distributed machine learning — using multiple computers in parallel to solve a complex problem. It contains a parameter server-based programing framework, which makes machine learning tasks on big data highly scalable, efficient and flexible. It also contains two distributed machine learning algorithms, which can be used to train the fastest and largest topic model and the largest word-embedding model in the world. The toolkit offers rich and easy-to-use APIs to reduce the barrier of distributed machine learning, so researchers…
