Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) is an open source framework for distributed deep learning suitable for commercial applications. It's primarily used to develop neural networks but can also be used for machine learning and cognitive computing. It supports multiple languages and can easily be used in the cloud. These factors make CNTK a good fit for various AI projects.
In this course, you'll explore the basic concepts required to work with Microsoft CNTK. You'll compare other frameworks with CNTK, examine the process of creating machine learning and deep learning models with CNTK, and learn how it can be used with several cloud services.
You'll move on to learn where to access CNTK documentation, community, and installation guidelines. Finally, you'll use CNTK to predict diabetes using retina scans.
