Google’s Tensorflow has captured a lot of attention. Our first post provide a very basic introduction to tensorflow. An Encounter with Google’s TensorFlow . Shortly after tensorflow was released Microsoft released their CNTK deep learning tool kit. In the following post we compared Tensorflow to CNTK: TensorFlow Meets Microsoft’s CNTK. Several months later Microsoft released an improved version which we considered here: CNTK Revisited. A New Deep Learning Toolkit Release from Microsoft.
There are two applications of deep learning that are very interesting: recurrent neural nets and autoencoders. We treat those here:
