Azure Machine Learning for developers
Azure Machine Learning is a powerful tool in the hands of data scientists. It allows them to perform predictive analytics from large volumes of data with no discernable patterns. But it’s an even more powerful tool in the hands of developers, who can build apps that benefit from machine learning. Real-time fraud detection? Scarily accurate online shopping recommendations? All this and much more is possible with Azure Machine Learning on the back end. See for yourself how it works and how to leverage it to build super-intelligent apps.
