Enterprises today are adopting artificial intelligence (AI) at a rapid pace to stay ahead of their competition, deliver innovation, improve customer experiences, and grow revenue. AI and machine learning applications are ushering in a new era of transformation across industries from skillsets to scale, efficiency, operations, and governance.
Today we are announcing the open sourcing of our recipe to pre-train BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) built by the Bing team, including code that works on Azure Machine Learning, so that customers can unlock the power of training custom versions of BERT-large models for their organization. This will enable developers and data scientists to build their own general-purpose language representation beyond BERT.
With the exponential rise of data, we are undergoing a technology transformation, as organizations realize the need for insights driven decisions. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies can help harness this data to drive real business outcomes across industries. Azure AI and Azure Machine Learning service are leading customers to the world of ubiquitous insights and enabling intelligent applications such as product recommendations in retail, load forecasting in energy production, image processing in healthcare to predictive maintenance in manufacturing and many more.
Today, we are announcing the general availability of Azure Machine Learning service. Azure Machine Learning service contains many advanced capabilities designed to simplify and accelerate the process of building, training, and deploying machine learning models.
