How to do it...

  1. First, we install CNTK with pip as follows:
pip install

Adjust the wheel file if necessary (see 

  1. After installing CNTK, we can import it into our Python environment:
import cntk
  1. Let's create some simple dummy data that we can use for training:
import numpy as npx_input = np.array([[1,2,3,4,5]], np.float32)y_input = np.array([[10]], np.float32)
  1. Next, we need to define the placeholders for the input data:
X = cntk.input_variable(5, np.float32)y = cntk.input_variable(1, np.float32)
  1. With CNTK, it's straightforward to stack multiple layers. We stack a dense layer with ...
