AWS, Microsoft launch deep learning interface Gluon

Gluon now works with Apache MXNet, but Microsoft and Amazon will be adding support for Microsoft's Cognitive Toolkit later.

While the interface primarily targets developers new to machine learning, the partners added that Gluon would also allow data veterans to leverage dynamic neural network graphs to build and train new models without sacrificing speed, Matt Wood, AWS general manager for AI, noted in a blog post.

Although Amazon and Microsoft are rivals in the cloud business, it's great to see the two collaborate on a project which can end up bettering humanity. Gluon is meant to lower the learning curve for developers getting started with neural networks.

AWS and Microsoft also published Gluon's reference specification on GitHub to allow other deep learning engines to integrate with the interface. Because the volume of data is large and the models and algorithms are complex, training a model often takes days or even weeks. In addition, because the Gluon interface brings together the training algorithm and the neural network model, developers can perform model training one step at a time. By combining the neural network model with its training algorithms, Gluon lets developers train their models in a step-by-step process. Other deep learning tools make model-building easier, but this simplicity can come at the cost of slower training performance. Aimed at programmers "of all skill levels", it enables new machine learning models to be created with "simple, concise" Python code. Microsoft and Amazon said in a joint press release today that building machine learning models can be very hard, requires a lot of time and processing power. The Gluon interface is open source and now available.

Amazon Web Services and Microsoft have teamed up to launch an open-source, deep learning library called Gluon that the companies say will make machine learning accessible to more developers. Developers can learn how to get started using Gluon with MXNet by viewing tutorials for both beginners and experts available by visiting: https://mxnet.incubator.apache.org/gluon/.
