Microsoft ‘smartens’ up machine learning for human-parity

Microsoft has updated its Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, a piece of software designed for so-called ‘deep learning’ used to speed advances in areas such as speech and image recognition — and it’s open sourced on GitHub. Deep learning, in brief By way of passing definition, deep learning is, in brief, machine learning that uses a set of algorithms that attempt to model high level abstractions and so get us closer to ‘genuine’Artificial Intelligence (AI) — by which we mean computing intelligence that gets us closer to human-level behaviour. The toolkit, previously known as CNTK, was initially developed by computer scientists at Microsoft who wanted a tool to do their own research more quickly. After initial development, the software tools here moved beyond speech and morphed into a wider offering. The now expanded…
