Power BI delivers AI power

Microsoft’s self-service BI tool will soon let business analysts build and use machine learning models, with minimal expertise, and no code. Access to Azure Cognitive Services and models hosted in Azure Machine Learning, as well as a new feature that explains KPI outcomes, are also included.

Machine learning (ML) is exciting technology, but it can be hard for non-specialists to take advantage of it. Microsoft has a lot of irons in the ML fire too, what with the pre-trained all-purpose ML models that are part of Azure Cognitive Services; the developer and data scientist-friendly Azure Databricks and the all-purpose and operations-oriented Azure Machine Learning (Azure ML), but Microsoft has needed something that brings these disparate components together and makes them more broadly accessible.
