  • First Online:
Deep Learning with Azure


This chapter introduces the Microsoft AI Platform, which is a set of services, infrastructure, and tools for building intelligent applications powered by AI. The Microsoft AI Platform runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing environment, which provides computing as a utility where you pay for what you use rather than what you own. For more details on the broader Azure Platform, please see the e-book Developer’s Guide to Microsoft Azure (Crump & Luijbregts, 2017). The Microsoft AI Platform enables data scientists and developers to create AI solutions in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
