A new member has just joined the family of Data Science Virtual Machines on Azure: The Deep Learning Virtual Machine. Like other DSVMs in the family, the Deep Learning VM is a pre-configured environment with all the tools you need for data science and AI development pre-installed. The Deep Learning VM is designed specifically for GPU-enabled instances, and comes with a complete suite of deep learning frameworks including Tensorflow, PyTorch, MXNet, Caffe2 and CNTK. It also comes witth example scripts and data sets to get you started on deep learning and AI problems, including:
