Microsoft Azure Machine Learning

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.

Kuidas võrrelda SAS tulemuslikkuse Julia?

Mul on SAS programmeerija ja arhitekt aastaid: I did my first professional work in the 1990s. I also have made friends among people who focus on SAS. I had mentioned in a SAS Consultants forum in Google Groups that the open source Julia language was delivering impressive results compared with the R language. The testing involves several math problems which could be translated into most any language. Previous results (ja tähis) has been already shared on http://julialang.org/

Ma oleks tahtnud proovida SAS näha kuidas Juliat, but I did not have a machine where I could load both software applications. Aga, Dom Pazzula mitte ainult katsetada seda oma arvutis, but also provided the comparison code. This blog post has the results of the test and the SAS code for you to try the comparison yourself.

Free eBooks from Microsoft

Microsoft Program Manager Eric Ligman has been posting lists of free eBooks from his blog. I have not mentioned these books in past blog postings. So, this posting is a catch-up for the three lists he has already mentioned and subsequently summarized. I will be commenting on free books which help for Microsoft data analytics and data science.

On SPSS parem kui SQL serveri andmete kaevandamine?

Olin hiljuti küsis seda küsimust keegi, kes töötab Microsoft, and who was sincerely trying to understand the differences. I first used SPSS in the early 1990s on the mainframe, just after I had started using SAS on UNIX. Over my career, Olen näinud SPSS erinevates keskkondades, ja olen ka avaldatud raamat ükskord SPSS suvandite stratifitseeritud proovi analüüsi kohta (varem nende ülesannetega ei olnud olemas, kuid nüüd on võimalik valida).

See postitus on minu vastus kuidas hinnata SPSS versus SQL serveri andmete kaevandamine.
