ML open source: Microsoft DMTK, Azure certificate

DMTK, a Machine Learning Toolkit from Microsoft

"About the same time Google announced open sourcing TensorFlow, Microsoft has pushed to GitHub DMTK, a Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit...

DMTK is a parameter server framework for training machine learning models with large amounts of data on a cluster of machines, taking care of data storage and operation, inter-process and inter-thread communication. DMTK was written in C++, comes with a client API and SDK and it uses ZeroMQ and/or MPI for communication."

note: currently "there is a problem with this website’s security certificate...
This server could not prove that it is; its security certificate is from*"

Web sites on Azure by default run on "" domain. 
So when a web site has assigned custom domain but not a custom certificate, web browsers get upset. So if no custom certificate is available, it may be better to just redirect for HTTPS, or use HTTP.
