Microsoft has announced that it is making the tools that its researchers use for artificial intelligence available to developers. It has released its Computational Network Toolkit on GitHub. Researchers said that they developed the open-source toolkit, called CNTK, for “necessity,” according to a blog post. Microsoft’s chief speech scientist, Xuedong Huang, said he and his team were “anxious to make faster improvements to how well computers can understand speech, and the tools they had to work with were slowing them down.” According to Microsoft Research’s blog, this computational toolkit can create deep learning models for things like speech and image recognition, and that it has “better communication capabilities.” Sometimes, deep learning tasks can take weeks to finish, so having a deep learning kit available to developers could possibly speed up…
