I’m excited to announce we are a recipient of the Microsoft Azure for Research Award, which includes large allocations of Azure storage and compute resources for a period of a year.
While at the iConference in March, I saw a demo of Azure’s machine learning for research functionality and found out about the award program. We use Azure for our database backend, and given the level of data analytics we will be performing in the next year, this is a great program for us. They’ve been developing some pretty sophisticated machine learning tools in the past few years, including integration of R, and a graphical predictive analytics tool. We are excited to try them out.
Thanks Microsoft Azure!
