Keras backend #797
I wasn't sure how to contact anyone working on CNTK, so I'm opening an issue here.
Would there be any interest on your part in developing a CNTK backend for Keras? I know that quite a few Keras users are on Windows, and they are relying on Theano as a backend for now. But being able to build models in Python with the Keras API and run them using CNTK could be a game-changer for many windows-using deep learning practitioners. Lots of Keras+Windows users would switch.
We definitely have interest in developing a CNTK Keras backend, it is actually part of our plans. We are now working on the Python API for CNTK v2, and we plan to build on top of it a Keras backend.
Please find below a list of people involved in CNTK v2:
I agree that it will be really a game-changer for Windows users. I started learning deeplearning (!) with Keras on Theano, because it's really easy to make experiments there. Now, Keras can work on Tensorflow for Linux users, but Windows users?
