Microsoft Open Sources Its Machine Learning Toolkit (thestack.com) 15

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft has this week made its Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit (DMTK) openly available to the developer community. Researchers at the Microsoft Asia lab have released the toolkit on GitHub under an MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) license, to encourage the use of multiple computers in parallel to solve complex problems. Its design builds on a parameter server-based programming framework, which allows big data machine learning tasks to be easily scaled, and flexibly and efficiently executed. The toolkit also contains two distributed machine learning algorithms, which can be used to train the world's fastest and largest topic model, as well as the largest word-embedding model.
This is a welcome move, especially after Google did something broadly similar.

  • I know we chastise the editors a lot for not specifying the meaning of an abbreviation, but I feel like in this case it is actually not helpful at all - it doesn't much matter what MIT stands for - it matters more what the MIT license is.
