Machine Learning (ML) 101 with Azure ML Studio and R with SQL Server 2016

Joe gives an introduction to working with Machine Learning with both Azure ML Studio and the R Language that is now integrated into SQL Server 2016. Azure ML Studio incorporates a visual method to generate ML model integration into apps such as Power BI, while R is a statistical programming language that can call ML Models and is integrated into SQL Server 2016 TSQL. Joe will compare and contrast the two approaches to ML integration and also show how they can be complimentary.
