Deploy your Custom AI Models on Azure Machine Learning Service


Before I begin, let me tell you that this post is part of the Microsoft Student Partners Developer Stories initiative, and is based on the AI and ML Track. We will be exploring various Azure services - Azure Notebooks, Machine Learning Service, Container Instances and Container Registry. This post is beginner-friendly and can be used by anyone to deploy their machine learning models to Azure in a Standard format. Even high school kids are creating Machine Learning models these days, using popular machine learning frameworks like Keras, PyTorch, Caffe, etc. The model format created in one framework slightly differs with the model format created in the other.

How machine learning is different from conventional programming language?


Machine learning and conventional programming language are two different approaches to computer programming languages that yields different outcomes or expectations. By definition, Machine Learning is a field of software engineering that enables PCs to learn without being unequivocally modified. AI shows PCs the capacity to take care of issues and perform complex errands all alone. Much of the time, issues unraveled utilizing AI depend on the PC's learning experience for which they wouldn't have been settled by ordinary programming dialects. Such issues can be face acknowledgment, driving, and ailments' conclusion.

Python String Format Cookbook


Every time I use Python's string format, version 2.7 and up, I get it wrong and for the life of me I can't figure out their documentation, I was quite familiar with the older % method. I started this string format cookbook as a quick reference for myself when wanting format numbers or anything. Thanks to other contributors I've learned and expanded the examples over time. The following table shows various ways to format numbers using Python's str.format(), including examples for both float formatting and integer formatting. To run examples use print("FORMAT".format(NUMBER));

The Roots of Lisp

In 1960, John McCarthy published a remarkable paper in which he did for programming something like what Euclid did for geometry. He showed how, given a handful of simple operators and a notation for functions, you can build a whole programming language. He called this language Lisp, for "List Processing," because one of his key ideas was to use a simple data structure called a list for both code and data. It's worth understanding what McCarthy discovered, not just as a landmark in the history of computers, but as a model for what programming is tending to become in our own time. It seems to me that there have been two really clean, consistent models of programming so far: the C model and the Lisp model.
