Microsoft’s Open-Source Deep Learning Toolkit CNTK, Is Now Available On Github Under MIT …

Last April, we saw Microsoft open-source its deep learning toolkit called the Computational Network Toolkit and make it available to researchers via Codeplex under a restricted open-source license. The software giant announced on Monday that the toolkit will now be available for anyone to use on GitHub. CNTK was, according to Microsoft’s chief speech scientist Xuedong Huang, developed by the company’s researchers out of necessity in order to make faster improvements to how well computers can understand speech. The toolkit is, in short, based on a deep learning algorithm which makes machine learning faster and much more efficient. In fact, deep learning is currently one of the most popular type of artificial intelligence. The approach is inspired from biological neural networks, that is the human brain, and how they handle real-time learning and data storing. It involves training artificial…
