  1. Add RMeCab package

    I want to use RMecab package in Azure ML, which is a popular tool for text segmentation in Japanese. We cannot use RMecab only by the 'install.packages' command because RMeCab needs Mecab installed in a server (http://taku910.github.io/mecab/#download )

    • Add anytime package to AML Studio R installed packages

      Could you add anytime R package to AML Studio as intalled R package so we do not have to import it as script bundle from a zip file each time we would like to use it?

          • jupyter notebook rendering differences

            Jupyter notebooks (running R code) seem to be rendering standard visualization packages differently when run via Azure ML (compared to local running), even when in the same browser. Specifically, parameters designed to tune the visualization appear to be ignored or rendered differently (ie: text size, spacing, margins).

            • Please allow us to tune assessment metrics for classification models

              Although we can see the confusion matrix, the assessment metrics do not allow us to adjust or tune parameters. As best I can tell, currently the scores for classification assume an equal division between Type 1 and Type 2 errors- this parameter should be user-specified!

              • Please provide mathematical documentation for statistical and ML models

                There are a few places in AML where the AML tool produces different results than the equivalent function in a standard R package; without documentation to understand specific parameter defaults and mathematical/theoretical approach differences, it's impossible to determine if the differences are a bug in the AML tool or a valid difference.

                • bioconductor

                  Hello,

                  AML is a great service. I have one blocker to make it work for me

                  bioconductor: http://www.bioconductor.org/ is one of the main libraries for bioinformaticians. well maintained and extended all the time (open source) by leading researchers around the world.

                  The installation command is the following: https://www.bioconductor.org/install/ biocLite is the install command for many packages that are available online (impossible to zip -as I would do for few packages)

                    • Score Model for Multiclass should include the actual Scored Probability of the Scored Label

                      In the screenshot attached you can see the Scored Model visualization gives me the Scored Probability for each of the 18 possible classes, and the Scored Label column shows which column has been selected (because it has the highest probability).
                      I would like to see an EXTRA COLUMN showing the Scored Probability of the selected Scored Label.
                      For example, looking at the first row, the Scored Label is 14. So I have to read the 'Scored Probabilities for Class "14"' column to get the probability for my Scored Label.
                      Right now have to write a Python program to extract the…

                      • notebooks.azure.com could be the ideal interface for: AzureML, HDInsight Spark + Jupyter & Batch

                        It would be great to have one notebook interface that could connect to all the relevant services.

                        This would also allow us to access notebooks, while a HDInsight cluster is stopped.

                          • Have a setting to disable the "publish to gallery" feature.

                            Provide a setting to disable the "publish to gallery" feature. The goal is to prevent both contributors and admins from accidentally publishing confidential company experiments and data to the world. One idea is to have this be a setting that only the admin could change.

                            • Add Calibration Module (Reliability Plots, Breier Score, Platt Scaling, Isotonic Regression)

                              Most learning algos do not produce well calibrated probabilities (typically either overconfident or underconfident) and one cannot directly use the scores in decision making. Two class Boosted Trees are performing well on several other aspects, but the score distribution is poor with bumps close to 0% and 100%. Current scaling transforms do not effectively solve this problem.

                                • "Hide" event in workspace

                                  The opportunity to "hide" event in the workspace would make it easier to make adjustments in the model without removing a specific event that will be used later on. By "hiding" I mean that when the model is running the event that are hidden will not be activated that run. By right click on the specific event there should be an option "hide".

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Support CNTK on Azure ML

                                    Using CNTK for RNN is great but making the models operational is a pain. It would be great to be able to use the CNTK libraries within the Azure ML service.

                                    • Be able to see/review web service performance

                                      I'd like to be able to see the performance (time taken to execute) of each Module in the Experiment, especially when running as a Web Service. I'd like to know which steps need the most tuning. And I'd like to be able to compare the performance of, for example, a Linear Regression Model vs. a Decision Forest Model.

                                      • At the end of processing, keep the starting datetime and the time elapsed in the upper right corner of MLS

                                        After an experiment is ended, it'll be useful to read the processing time elapsed and the starting datetime in the upper right corner (where "Running" appears) of the main window.

                                        Thank you

                                        • Access to logs of Execute R Script in Web Service

                                          Currently, there is an option to enable logging which can be turned on in the web service configuration page. Unfortunately, those logs are kind of useless to me.

                                          What I would like to get is all the logs from Execute R Script modules available in Azure Storage after each run with logging set to on. Exactly the same ones I can access after running an experiment, containing also text from the console.

                                          Without proper logs I can't easily debug the script. You mentioned over a year ago that you were going to include debugging which would also be very helpful.
