Yesterday, Microsoft publicly announced a new technology for machine learning called Microsoft Azure Machine Learning. This cloud-based technology promises ease in building data-driven analytics applications. Based on my MVP status and relationship with key Microsoft people, I have been aware of this technology for about two years: I have been keeping silent on this topic and will be only commenting on what is publicly available as it becomes available. This blog post has more of the publicly-announced details.
Here is the preview video posted to both YouTube and the Microsoft website:
Joseph Sirosh heads this project, and blogged about this technology. He promises that in July 2014 we will have a public preview of this technology. He also invited people to read the machine learning blog too.
I will be commenting on this new Microsoft technology as it rolls out. I have been participating in the beta program, and I have had several meetings in Redmond with Microsoft representatives about this technology, including hands-on training.
