Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit
Unlock deeper learning with the new Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit
The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit—previously known as CNTK—empowers you to harness the intelligence within massive datasets through deep learning by providing uncompromised scaling, speed, and accuracy with commercial-grade quality and compatibility with the programming languages and algorithms you already use. Hear about the team that developed the Cognitive Toolkit, or read more below.
Speed & Scalability
The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit trains and evaluates deep learning algorithms faster than other available toolkits, scaling efficiently in a range of environments—from a CPU, to GPUs, to multiple machines—while maintaining accuracy.
The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit is built with sophisticated algorithms and production readers to work reliably with massive datasets. Skype, Cortana, Bing, Xbox, and industry-leading data scientists already use the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit to develop commercial-grade AI.
The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit offers the most expressive, easy-to-use architecture available. Working with the languages and networks you know, like C++ and Python, it empowers you to customize any of the built-in training algorithms, or use your own.
To help get you started, we’ve assembled a large number of different code samples, recipes and tutorials across scenarios working with a variety of datasets: images, numeric, speech and text. SEE THE MODEL GALLERY
