MLOps: DevOps for Machine Learning

Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) is like DevOps for the machine learning lifecycle. This includes things like model deployment & management and data tracking, which help with productionizing machine learning models. Through the survey below, we'd love to get feedback on your current DevOps practices as well as your prospective usage ...

ML.NET September Updates

This release of ML.NET (1.5.2) brings numerous bug fixes and enhancements, while tooling updates include the ability to train object detection models using Azure ML via Model Builder and to locally train image classification models with the ML.NET CLI.

Introducing the Half type!

The IEEE 754 specification defines many floating point types, including: binary16, binary32, binary64 and binary128. Most developers are familiar with binary32 (equivalent to float in C#) and binary64 (equivalent to double in C#). They provide a standard format to represent a wide range of values with a precision acceptable for many ...

Using ML.NET for deep learning on images in Azure

This post will show you how to train a custom image classification model in Azure to categorize flowers using ML.NET Model Builder. Then, you can leverage your existing .NET skills to consume the trained model inside a C# .NET Core console application. Best of all, little to no prior machine learning knowledge is required.

An Introduction to DataFrame

Last month, we announced .NET support for Jupyter notebooks, and showed how to use them to work with .NET for Apache Spark and ML.NET. Today, we're announcing the preview of a DataFrame type for .NET to make data exploration easy. If you've used Python to manipulate data in notebooks, you'll already be familiar with the concept of a DataFrame...

ML.NET Model Builder Updates

ML.NET is a cross-platform, machine learning framework for .NET developers, and Model Builder is the UI tooling in Visual Studio that uses Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) to easily allow you to train and consume custom ML.NET models.
