Microsoft releases open source artificial intelligence toolkit CNTK on GitHub

If you already used Cortana or Skype translator on your Windows devices, you may have wondered what does it take to make computers understand human speech. Well, Microsoft is betting big on deep learning and artificial intelligence, so its researchers chose to develop their own modern toolkit called Computational Network Toolkit (CNTK) , in hope of reaching more breakthroughs in the machine learning field. Today the company is announcing that it’s just made CNTK available to use to other developers on Github. According to Microsoft researchers, thanks to better communication capabilities, this new toolkit is faster for speech and image recognition than the four other popular computational toolkits that other developers rely on. As deep learning activities can take weeks until completion, this achievement is a pretty big one for Microsoft. –> To develop…
