Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) Image Detection Demo

In this video, we take a look at using Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK)—a unified deep learning toolkit from Microsoft.

The demo included in this video was part of our Ignite talk on cloud innovation with Azure Government. We use CNTK for an image detection problem: Identifying objects within the refrigerator.  Image detection is a harder class of problem than image classification, as image detection goes beyond classification to include localization of object(s) within an image. This is the reason for dropping down into the deep learning library. (Earlier in this presentation, Steve Michelotti showed the use of Cognitive API for image classification.)
