Dear users of LRZ,

we are pleased to announce that the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre will offer a full day "CNTK Workshop" at LRZ, Garching near Munich, on Tuesday, 30 October 2018 in cooperation with Microsoft.

The workshop will introduce CNTK, a machine learning toolkit developed by Microsoft. CNTK empowers you to harness the intelligence within massive datasets through deep learning by providing scaling, speed, and accuracy with commercial grade quality and compatibility with the programming languages and algorithms you already use.  The workshop will also cover Microsoft Azure, a collection of cloud services for building, deploying and managing intelligent applications through a network of datacentres.

For details and registration see:

Please bring your own laptop for the workshop's hands-on session in the afternoon!
