Microsoft launches a service to help predict the future

Joab Jackson | June 17, 2014
Microsoft will soon offer a service aimed at making machine-learning technology more widely usable.

The service will also have a software development kit for integrators and third-party software developers who wish to build their own services and applications from Azure ML.

Azure ML has been in private beta for the past year with select customers. With the help of Microsoft systems builder Max 451, one large retail firm has used the service to predict what individual customers will likely purchase next.

Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, working with application provider OSISoft, uses the service to study energy usage in its campus buildings, as well as to monitor for outages.

Microsoft has not finalized the pricing for Azure ML once it goes into full commercial availability, the date of which has not been announced.
