Scale up your deep learning with Batch AI preview

dinsdag 10 oktober 2017

Imagine reducing your training time for an epoch from 30 minutes to 30 seconds, and testing many different hyper-parameter weights at the same time. Available now in public preview, Batch AI is a new service that helps you train and test deep learning and other AI or machine learning models with the same scale and flexibility used by Microsoft’s data scientists.

Training a neural network to play Hangman without a dictionary

donderdag 27 juli 2017

We used reinforcement learning and CNTK to train a neural network to guess hidden words in a game of Hangman. Our trained model has no reliance on a reference dictionary: it takes as input a variable-length, partially-obscured word (consisting of blank spaces and any correctly-guessed letters) and a binary vector indicating which letters have already been guessed. In the git repository associated with this post, we provide sample code for training the neural network and deploying it in an Azure Web App for gameplay.
