CNTK - Computational Network Toolkit (CNTK)

  •        566

The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit is a free, easy-to-use, open-source, commercial-grade toolkit that trains deep learning algorithms to learn like the human brain. It is a unified deep-learning toolkit that describes neural networks as a series of computational steps via a directed graph.

In this directed graph, leaf nodes represent input values or network parameters, while other nodes represent matrix operations upon their inputs. CNTK allows to easily realize and combine popular model types such as feed-forward DNNs, convolutional nets (CNNs), and recurrent networks (RNNs/LSTMs).

CNTK can be included as a library in your Python or C++ programs, or used as a standalone machine learning tool through its own model description language (BrainScript). In addition you can use the CNTK model evaluation functionality from your C# or Java program.

onnx - Open Neural Network Exchange

  •    PureBasic

Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) is the first step toward an open ecosystem that empowers AI developers to choose the right tools as their project evolves. ONNX provides an open source format for AI models. It defines an extensible computation graph model, as well as definitions of built-in operators and standard data types. Initially we focus on the capabilities needed for inferencing (evaluation). Caffe2, PyTorch, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, Apache MXNet and other tools are developing ONNX support. Enabling interoperability between different frameworks and streamlining the path from research to production will increase the speed of innovation in the AI community. We are an early stage and we invite the community to submit feedback and help us further evolve ONNX.

About a year ago, it has been officially announced that Theano will stop support for their library. They don't add new features anymore and soon, they will stop adding bug fixes to the library. NeuPy cannot evolve having large number of features that depend on the dead library. For this reason, NeuPy was moved to the Tensorflow. All the Theano based code has been fully migrated to Tenorflow and it can be tested from the release/v0.7.0 branch.
