AWS, Microsoft launch deep learning library Gluon

Thursday 12 October 2017 | 18:06 CET | News

Amazon Web Services and Microsoft announced a new deep learning library, called Gluon, which allows developers to prototype, build, train and deploy sophisticated machine learning models for the cloud, devices at the edge and mobile apps. With Gluon, developers can build machine learning models using a simple Python API and a range of pre-built, optimised neural network components. This makes it easier for developers to build neural networks using simple, concise code, without sacrificing training performance.

The makers of the Gluon interface said it gives developers access to easy-to-understand code, flexible structure, dynamic graphs, and high performance. The Gluon interface currently works with the deep learning framework Apache MXNet and will support Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) in an upcoming release. AWS and Microsoft published Gluon’s reference specification so other deep learning engines can be integrated with the interface.
