Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning Service that competes with offerings from AWS and Google

Hello Friends,

Today I like to give some idea about AI (Artificial Intelligence) & Machine Learning Services from Microsoft Cloud platform Azure. 

Microsoft looks to keep up in the AI race with a machine learning service that competes with offerings from AWS and Google, among others.

Azure cloud is updated with all AI & Machine Learning frameworks like Amazon Machine Learning (Amazon ML), Apache MXNet, TensorFlow & many other & try to win cloud race from AWS & Google by providing up to date services.

Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning service is now generally available for developers and data scientists who look for more efficient ways to build machine learning models. Microsoft’s disclosure comes just days after AWS released enhancements to its SageMaker machine learning platform at the AWS re:Invent 2018 conference, a platform that helps developers and data scientists build, train and deploy machine learning models.

Ronald Schmelzer, an analyst at Cognilytica, based in Ellicott City, Md, Said

Microsoft is keeping pace with Amazon and Google with [its] enhanced support for AI and machine learning capabilities within [its] Visual Studio Code development environment and [its] cloud-based ML platform

The Azure Machine Learning service supports popular open source frameworks, including PyTorch, TensorFlow and scikit-learn, so developers and data scientists can use familiar tools. Developers can use Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, PyCharm, Azure Databricks notebooks or Jupyter notebooks to build apps that use the service.

The Azure Machine Learning service speeds up the process of identifying useful algorithms and machine learning pipelines, which automates model selection and tuning. This can cut development time from days to hours, said Bharat Sandhu, director of product marketing, big data and analytics at Microsoft.

It also provides DevOps capabilities, via integrated CI/CD tooling, to enable experiment tracking and manage machine learning models deployed in the cloud and on the edge, said Venky Veeraraghavan, group program manager for Microsoft Azure, in a blog post.

So all big cloud player trying to cost down and make things automate which can cut down cost of experts but I think still all things will same as to manage business require experts ? so all business do not take risk and hire us as development company.

“When a vendor needs to catch up to the leader — or leaders — as Microsoft has to in AI, then it needs to do this with two strategies: ease of use and breadth of offering,” said Holger Mueller, an analyst at Constellation Research, based in San Francisco. “Microsoft is doing both — making it easier for AI specialists and data scientists to bring the data together, create, validate and deploy AI models on the one dimension. On the other dimension, it offers the wide range of languages and models for use cases beyond the very popular TensorFlow.”

Azure Machine Learning also incorporates notebooks into the Visual Studio Code environment, to allow side-by-side code and data science activities, which help to make machine learning a better citizen in the Microsoft code environment, he said.

All eyes will now be on adoption of PyTorch and the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX), an open format for deep learning and machine learning models developed by Microsoft, Facebook and AWS, Mueller said. Microsoft has released the source code for the ONNX Runtime, an inference engine for machine learning models in the ONNX format that runs on Windows, Linux and Mac. Microsoft teams use the ONNX Runtime to improve the scoring latency for machine learning models in Bing Search, Bing Ads and Office productivity services.

So friends I think you get some idea about update from Microsoft & they will do very good in cloud based services. Which will bring to more deployment on Azure or other cloud platform & we provide best Cloud Testing Services. Just contact us our QA & Testing team will do all things & provide you best support to you & your team.Cat
