Deep Learning in the Cloud

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:
