Microsoft open-sources its distributed machine learning library DMTK

Software giant Microsoft has today announced the release of a new open-source machine learning toolkit that goes by the name DMTK.

DMTK contains a framework for training models on multiple servers, a topic modeling algorithm, and a word-embedding algorithm for natural language processing.

It can be found on GitHub under an MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) license.

Developers can use these tools to handle machine learning at scale with fewer servers, revealed George Thomas Jr. in a blog post.

Google open-sourced a machine learning library called TensorFlow just three days ago while Facebook released open-source tools for deep learning, called Torch, earlier in the year.

You can find documentation for the new DMTK toolkit here.
