#MachineLearning using #Microsoft Azure
Me: Azure , what is 1 + 1 ?
Azure: It’s 1.999999999992212
Me: No it’s not.
Azure: Come on, I’m almost right!
I’ve just been playing with the Azure Machine Learning Studio, to see if it could be accurate enough for practical applications. The most simple example I could think of was a model where it was given 1,000 examples of one number, followed by a second number which was one greater.
You can see the model in the Cortana Intellegence Gallery here
Interestingly, the result is not perfect as would be expected, but it goes wrong in a way that only a machine would think is close to the correct answer.
