New tools and an AI school show that Microsoft is getting serious about

delivering to developers an AI-powered future


														
							

Microsoft’s idea is to send you back to school—to Microsoft’s own AI School, that is.

Building on the familiar framework of online training courses, the AI School site is designed to introduce many common machine learning concepts and tools, helping you learn how and, more important, when to use them. It’s a useful mix of modules, with some covering general AI topics and others more focused on Azure’s machine learning features and tools.

Perhaps the most important modules are those that introduce Python, the language that’s used by many data analysis and machine learning toolkits. They cover analytical tools like Jupyter Notebooks, as well as libraries that handle and manipulate large amounts of in-memory data. If you’re not familiar with Python, studying these modules is an important step because much of Azure’s machine learning tools works with Python – especially its deep learning services.
