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. This workshop aims at making attendees comfortable with key deep learning concepts and basics of Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit. Through lectures and hands on exercises we will introduce commonly used deep learning models, discuss the scenarios in which they are used, and provide best practices and patterns on how to implement them with Cognitive Toolkit.
