Why this Slide:
It shows we have a very broad platform. It about BOTH IaaS and PaaS, that these work together. It shows that we continue to lead in world class IT capabilities and that there’s really nothing missing.
We have already seen how the Azure Platform is IaaS + Pass – but I want you to understand that this is a huge number of capabilities – IT building blocks if you will.
Every one of these blocks you provision anytime, self-service anywhere in the world 24x7. You pay for what you use, you can get more or less anytime and you can fully automate everything…
DON’T spent too much time on this slide – you are going to DEMO (aren’t you!!!)… DON’T go through each block…
Transition to NEXT Slide: Make the build go backwards to show JUST IaaS and then you will go to the demo to show it.

Microsoft has been working on machine learning for over two decades. We formed Microsoft research back in 1991 to tackle the tough problems internally that we’re enabling you to tackle yourselves today.
When we think of learning from experience – past data + human input – a great example is Hotmail. Back in 1997, external email was a relatively new concept. There wasn’t a lot to go on in terms of what email the customer wants and what they do not. With the rise of email, also came spam – and lots of it. Some of those issues were easy – like Nigerian princes we learned pretty quickly don’t give away their fortunes to strangers. But what about “free offer” – maybe that free offer is something the customer always wanted. Maybe it’s something they’d never want. But that’s where the “human input” part comes in as data is being collected – that takes the form of the actual user of the email service saying “yes, this is junk” or “no, I want this” and then the data scientist learning in aggregate and making tweaks to the underlying model in response.
And we kept going with that learning – relying on past data and human input to solve problems like the best way home, which search results are most meaningful to the user and one of the toughest ones to tackle with Kinect. Kinect’s past data was all in the lab – we didn’t have a product in market that captured user input and translated that to active game play so we had to make up the variables. But that only takes us so far. The researchers told me that one thing they didn’t consider was people answering the phone while playing. This happens a lot – and Kinect at first was translating this as a wild motion in the game play – essentially crashing people’s cars or any number of unintended consequences. That was the human input we rely on, which allowed us to learn quickly and adjust the underlying model to ensure that answering the phone would not be considered part of the game moving forward.
Skype translator is another huge machine learning problem to solve if you think of all the ways a person who is speaking English can pronounce the same word – tom-A-to or tom-AH-to – that’s the same word in French so Skype has to adjust quickly to ensure all the millions of variables are considered.
But what about using all this learning to predict what’s next? Many of the same algorithms running behind the scenes of our products in market today are available within Azure ML, allowing you to take your own past data and learn from it what will happen in the future for your business.
Azure Machine Learning is a cloud-based predictive-analytics service that offers a streamlined experience for data scientists of all skill levels. It's accompanied by the Azure Machine Learning Studio (ML Studio), which is a browser-based tool that provides an easy to use, drag-and-drop interface for building machine-learning models. It comes with a library of time-saving experiments and features best-in-class algorithms developed and tested in the real world by Microsoft businesses such as Bing. And its built-in support for R and Python means you can build custom scripts to customize your model. Once you've built and trained your model in the ML Studio, you can easily expose it as a Web service that is consumable from a variety of programming languages, or share it with the community by placing it in the Cortana Intelligence Gallery.
ML Studio simplifies machine learning by providing a drag-and-drop model in which you build workflow. With ML Studio and the rich of assortment of modules it offers for modeling workflow, you can often build sophisticated models without writing a single line of code. However, it allows you to insert R and Python code anywhere in the workflow, providing infinite flexibility in what you can model.
ML starts with data, which can come from a variety of sources. The data typically needs to be "cleaned" before it is used, and ML Studio includes modules to help with the cleaning. (Examples of cleaning include removing rows with missing data, replacing missing data algorithmically, removing duplicate rows, and removing rows containing "outliers." In practice, cleaning the data can be very time-intensive and often consumes 50% of the time required to build the model.) Once the data is ready, you select an algorithm and "train" the model by allowing it to iterate over the data and find patterns in it. After that comes scoring and evaluating the model, which tells you how well the model is able to predict outcomes. All of this is performed visually in ML Studio. Once the model is ready, a few button clicks deploy it as a Web service so it can be called from client apps.
ML Studio provides canned implementations of 25 of the classic algorithms used in machine learning. It divides them into four categories.
Anomaly detection is the identification of items, events, or observations which do not conform to an expected pattern or other items in a dataset. A classic example is examining a dataset representing banking transactions and detecting potentially fraudulent transactions in that group.
Regression algorithms seek to establish and quantify relationships between variables. By establishing a relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables, regression analysis can enable the value of a dependent variable to be predicted given a set of inputs with a quantifiable accuracy. A great example can be seen at https://how-old.net/#, a site that lets you upload a photo and then guesses your age with uncanny accuracy. The site uses Azure Machine Learning and combines classic regression with advanced image recognition.
The purpose of classification algorithms is to identify the category to which an observation belongs based on training data consisting of observations which have already been classified (assigned to a category). A great example is determining whether an e-mail belongs to the "spam" category or the "not-spam" category.
Clustering seeks to group a set of objects in such a way that objects in the same group (called a cluster) are more similar to each other than to those in other groups (clusters).
The Azure ML Cheat Sheet helps you pick the right algorithm for a model, even if you're not a trained data scientist. One example is if you want to use a set of input values to predict an output value from a continuous set of values (e.g., a person's age), use linear regression. But if you're more interested in the distribution of the output, you might use fast forest quantile regression instead. An example of when you would use the latter is using growth charts to assess child development. "Abby's height is in the 10% quantile of the heights of kids her age." Classification algorithms, by contrast, are used to predict a value from a discrete set of values -- for example, classifying an e-mail as spam or not spam.
Once deployed as a Web service, a model can be used with simple REST calls over HTTP. This enables developers to build "smart apps" that get their intelligence from ML. In the next lab, students will build and train an ML model, deploy it as a Web service, and then write a client app that uses it.
Microsoft cognitive services uses CNTK for several tasks in speech, vision and text based deep learning applications. Microsoft customer service bot, face detection framework to name a few.
Machine translation problems are very amenable to solutions based on deep learning. Skype translator efficiently uses such technologies.
Cortana learns acoustic models using CNTK for scalable training on very large datasets.
Bing uses the toolkit for relevance and ranking.
Bing ads uses the toolkit for recognition of products in advertiser provided images in addition to other prediction and relevance problems.
CNTK is used for object recognition in Augmented reality applications.
Within Microsoft research CNTK has been pioneered and continues to extend the deep learning technology frontier.
Microsoft researchers went into the history book by reaching human parity in conversational speech recognition achieving word-error rate of 5.9% enabled by CNTK’s multi-server scalability. The reference provided has the details of this breakthrough work.
The model training task on other toolkits would have taken months at a time. With Cognitive Toolkit the team was able to cut down the training time to a week allowing for rapid iterations and model tuning.
The toolkit is tested in production setting for accuracy, efficiency and scalability in a multi-GPU/multi-server environment.
The toolkit is designed to bring lego like extensibility allowing for expression of arbitrary NN ……. Several use cases have been built using the toolkit for speech, image, text and combinations of the data types.

Some of the features such as how-old.net and caption bot are powered by the Microsoft cognitive services.
How-old.net is an app that predicts the age of the individuals in a picture.
On the right hand side you can see that Microsoft Caption bot is able to automatically derive linguistically rich accurate textual description of the image.
f values (e.g., a person's age), use linear regression. But if you're more interested in the distribution of the output, you might use fast forest quantile regression instead. An example of when you would use the latter is using growth charts to assess child development. "Abby's height is in the 10% quantile of the heights of kids her age."
