This page provides some useful official resources about Microsoft Cognitive ToolkitSee this page for unofficial resources about CNTK.

Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, previously known as CNTK (Computational Network Toolkit), is a machine learning and deep learning framework developed by Microsoft Research. Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit describes neural networks as a series of computational steps via a directed graph.

The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit – CNTK – is a unified deep-learning toolkit by Microsoft Research. This video provides a high-level view of the toolkit.

It can be included as a library in your Python or C++ programs, or used as a standalone machine learning tool through its own model describtion language (BrainScript).

CNTK supports 64-bit Linux or 64-bit Windows operating systems. To install you can either choose pre-compiled binary packages, or compile the Toolkit from the source provided in Github.

Notes: Guido’s friend Ruggero used CNTK transfer learning, and he said it is pretty fast on multi-GPUs.
