Azure Batch AI Training for deep learning models
Azure Batch AI Training, a new addition to Azure Batch that will target data scientists and AI researchers, as well as those who train and test deep learning and other AI models, will soon be available. Users will specify their job requirements and the path to model and data, and Batch will take care of provisioning a cluster and running the jobs.
Batch AI Training will support any learning framework on Linux or Windows including CNTK, TensorFlow, Chainer, Caffe, and others. The service will make it easy to run hyper-parameter sweeps to optimize models, scaling up and down a GPU cluster as needed. Batch AI Training will provide a Python API to use with scripts and Notebooks, and an SDK for automation.
We'll be accepting nominations for early adopters to provide feedback in advance of a preview coming soon. Customers can go to AI Batch Training to sign up for the preview.
