Companies can use it to develop tools for evaluating big data within days or hours. This means that data models generated by data scientists are no longer needed. The development of the software had already begun under the current CEO Nadella.
As of July, Microsoft will release a pre-release version of its machine learning tool in its Azure cloud service. As the responsible Microsoft Vice President Joseph Sirosh explained , programs can be developed within hours or in some cases even minutes.

This is the new rules of the game. “Sirosh believes that this will make an esoteric area generally available. As a result, organizations can easily develop tools that prepare cloud data for better real-world use.
Sirosh gives an example of an elevator with built-in sensors. Maintenance technicians would monitor him. With increasing accuracy, malfunctions could be predicted and preventively prevented. Even automakers could use the technology to detect problems on an assembly line and resulting errors of the vehicle early on. Thus, a later recall could be prevented.
So far, data scientists have made the necessary models for companies that need tools for such requirements. They were subsequently handed over to IT for execution, Sirosh explains. In the end, there were highly specialized systems, but there was always a lot left in the way of implementation. “That’s not the case anymore. Any developer or engineer, any mathematician can become a highly efficient data scientist without learning a complex cloud program. ”
Carnegie Mellon University already uses the technology to measure water and energy use in buildings. “Within hours, they could correlate data streams and use them for error detection and diagnostics, which would have taken days and weeks earlier,” explains Prabal Acharyy of Osisoft, who has worked on the program as an application developer. “Development is progressing in big leaps.”
Microsoft had developed the technique for machine learning under Satya Nadella. He is now the third CEO in the company’s history. At that time, he led research and development within the Online Services department. Also, the search engine Bing has the technology to optimize the order of hits.
