Microsoft Details Azure AI and Machine Learning Improvements

Microsoft Azure recovering from major networking-related outage that took out Office 365, Xbox Live, and other services

The beauty of distributed ledgers is the ability to model a database and financial system exactly to the needs you have without significant annual cash outflow, and Microsoft allowing users to set up a cloud-enabled blockchain with minimal resources may be a stepping stone from corporate held databases to individual databases.

Cognitive Search, which uses machine learning to enable searching across disparate data types (such as OCR-scanned images, PDFs, and handwritten notes) is being promoted to general availability. These include automation, a visual, drag-and-drop machine learning interface for creating models without any code, and improved support for Nvidia's TensorRT and Intel nGraph for hardware-accelerated machine learning models.

Azures Cognitive Service is a collection of APIs to intelligent algorithms that developers can use to perform image recognition, speech recognition, natural language processing, anomaly detection, and other intelligent tasks.
