I got this from my colleague Rajat Arya: Amazon newly release a new deep learning framework called Amazon DSSTNE. I have connected with Scott Le Grand, one of the main developers, and he kindly agreed to talk about DSSTNE at our Data Science Summit US, July 12-13 in SF.  In addition, Jeff Dean, Google's TensorFlow creator will speak as well.
