*A Giant Squid in the Flying Bat *
 
*Explanation: *
 
Very faint but also very large on planet Earth's sky, a giant Squid Nebula cataloged as Ou4, and Sh2-129 also known as the Flying Bat Nebula, are both caught in this scene toward the royal constellation Cepheus. Composed with a total of 20 hours of broadband and narrowband data, the telescopic field of view is almost 4 degrees or 8 Full Moons across. Discovered in 2011 by French astro-imager Nicolas Outters, the Squid Nebula's alluring bipolar shape is distinguished here by the telltale blue-green emission from doubly ionized oxygen atoms. Though apparently completely surrounded by the reddish hydrogen emission region Sh2-129, the true distance and nature of the Squid Nebula have been difficult to determine. Still, a recent investigation suggests Ou4 really does lie within Sh2-129 some 2,300 light-years away. Consistent with that scenario, Ou4 would represent a spectacular outflow driven by HR8119, a triple system of hot, massive stars seen near the center of the nebula. If so, the truly giant Squid Nebula would physically be nearly 50 light-years across.

Amazon open-sourced software for deep learning called DSSTNE (pronounced "destiny") on GitHub under an Apache license.

"In its current form, DSSTNE cannot support convolutional workloads for image recognition, and its support for recurrent neural nets is limited. (Engineers will be working on that.) But the software can train using multiple graphics processing units (GPU) at one time, unlike some other frameworks, and it’s already showing performance advantages over even the cutting-edge TensorFlow. Amazon says it provides a 2.1X speedup over TensorFlow on a g2.8xlarge GPU instance in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud."
