  1. unable to turn off an running experiment

    With a recently update of the Azure ML, I often deal with an issue that I can't not turn off a running experiment. This has been happening sometimes. I am not sure this is a bug introduced by the new updates

    • Proper Workspace Management Tool (+ Account upgrade)

      A lot of work has to be done on the workspace management in order to easily create / modify / delete workspaces from Azure ML Studio.
      + the ability to upgrade easily a free account without touching the cumbersome Azure portal.
      + the ability to delete a free account.
      + an easy way to transfer experiments from one workspace to another (it does not work smoothly today)

      • Quick Export of Visualize Output

        The Visualize Table output is really helpful in a variety of ways. Often times, though, I am saving it to a dataset, then exporting to CSV. It would be great if the results could be triggered to a CSV export (for Excel Viewing and additional deep dives) much more quickly.

        Since the 'Save to Dataset' is a separate step, and then the data conversion, this gets a little cumbersome. Instead, having an option within the Visualize window to export to CSV would be helpful.

        Thank you!

        • Lock Top Header Row in the Modal Popups (Visualize)

          In the Visualize popups, when you have more than 10 rows or so, it's hard to see the column headers. You should have the option to lock the header so that when you scroll down you can see what columns/features/statistics etc. are applying to the row you are concerned with.

          • Add Linux support to the machine learning workbench

            Would be nice to interact with azure and also would make the machine learning addon for vscode usable on linux

                • Re-open feature request "Deployment of ML experiments programmatically"

                  This feature request is marked as complete https://feedback.azure.com/forums/257792-machine-learning/suggestions/7575534-deployment-of-ml-experiments-programmatically, but the library is still far from being complete.

                  • Add R package "VineCopula" and "ExtDist"

                    Add R package "VineCopula" and "ExtDist"

                    It taking too much running time for installing all the dependencies for these two packages.

                    Also I tried the miniCRAN method http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com/2015/10/using-minicran-in-azure-ml.html
                    which runs pefectly and gives output within the experiment, but while deployment testing using the API request it gives error as "package is not available"

                    • Monitor hyperparameter tuning progress, abort and provide best values found so far

                      I used "Tuned Model Hyperparameters" and it's taking longer than I expected (hours), with no indication of remaining progress. I hesitate to stop it because I would like to have information about the best solution found so far. The log only shows when each training started and stopped, but doesn't show the parameters tested at each attempt and the results.

                      It would also be useful to have a graphical view of the progress: Plot with X = iteration, Y = Each of the possible metrics (AUC, F-Score,...). This graphical view should be available as parameter tuning progresses, to help decide…

                        • Multi Label Classification

                          Support for Multi Label Classification Algorithms using the Azure ML Tasks.

                          This is a very common request mostly in text analysis where one phrase can belong to one or more categories and we need to know which ones.

                            • Add ASCII Folding Capabilities

                              Sometimes when doing text analysis we need to remove pontuation and accentuation from text... usually I would convert the text to Latin-ASCII and it would be fine but I am currently struggling between UTF8 support of Azure ML and the output since I get alot of weird characters...

                              This is actually a pain point in this kind of work, so it would be amazing if a task would exist to do this kind of operation.

                              Thank you

                              • Portuguese Language

                                It would be great if Azure ML could support the Portuguese Language in both variants ( PT-PT and PT-BR ).
                                It is one of the most used languages in the world...

                                Any idea when we can be expecting this for Text Analysis?

                                  • Partial Dependence plots

                                    Similar to R, Azure should create a module of partial dependence plots (PDP) for its native machine learning modules.
                                    PDP, wherein, the predictor variable of interest is varied over its range while the remaining predictors are fixed at a joint set of values sampled from the dataset to produce an instance of the response dependence curve. This process is replicated for all learn records, sampling new joint set of fixed values each time, creating a family of partial dependence curves which are then averaged and centered so as to generate the final partial dependence plot (PDP).

                                        • Make azure ML studio scalable

                                          For large datasets and complex algorithms it either takes very long to train the model or training fails because of memory lack. Please make azure ml studio scalable. Let users choose cores and memory before running an experiment
