How can we improve Microsoft Azure Machine Learning?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  2. Bring back CLI image commands ("az ml image create" etc)

    The earlier preview versions of the CLI extension (e.g. 1.0.10) contained commands for manipulating the Docker images (e.g. "az ml image create container"). This was very useful, because it made it possible to decouple the time consuming task of building the image from the actual deployment to a compute target and allowed verification of the image prior to deploying to production. (In a CI/CD process, image building was part of the "Build" pipeline while webservice deployment was performed in the "Release" pipeline.)

    In the latest CLI extension version (1.0.33.7), the image commands are not present in the CLI, even though…

  3. Export Azure ML Visual Interface experiments to Python

    To make the visual UI really useful, it would be great to support export of Azure ML Visual Interface experiments to Python.
    The same applies to the Automated ML UI.

    Hi Azure Customer,

    We have the plan for AutoML. But currently it is not in the roadmap for visual interface. We will be watching for additional upvotes for future priority considerations. Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

  4. Open source the Azure ML SDK and CLI extension

    It would be great if the Azure ML SDK and CLI extension were open-sourced and put on GitHub (like several other Azure tools). The user community could help by fixing minor issues and adding improvements and the increased code transparency would help the users learn to use the tools correctly and understand their behavior.

    The Azure ML SDK and CLI extension are implemented in Python, so everyone has access to the source code anyway, but there is no way currently to contribute fixes to the original projects and determining the changes between versions is cumbersome.

  6. Deploy a web service to AKS without a public endpoint

    It seems like the Machine Learning service currently always uses a public load balancer with a public IP when deploying a web service to AKS.

    We do not want to expose our web services to the public as that is a security risk - even with the Authorization keys. Also, even if we had to expose it, we'd prefer to use our own centralized ingress system to control the traffic coming into the cluster (e.g. via Azure Application Gateway v2).

    We therefore would like to be able to choose one of the following additional methods when connecting to AKS/when deploying…

  7. Enable GPU support when deploying to Azure Container Instances

    Azure Container Instances can be configured to provide GPU resources to the container (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/container-instances/container-instances-gpu). However, there is no way to ask for GPU resources when deploying ML services via the Azure ML SDK (AciWebservice.deploy_configuration) or Azure CLI (az ml service create aci). Even if the image is built with GPU support enabled (ContainerImage.image_configuration(enable_gpu=True,...)), the image does not work properly in ACI because the GPU resources are not present.

    Please extend the SDK and CLI to allow specifying the GPU count and SKU when deploying to ACI.

    Hi Azure Customer,

    Thank you for your feedback. This feature is currently not planned mainly because ACI doesn’t have full GPU support yet. We will follow up with ACI team and expose it when they add full support. At the meantime, we will keep this feedback and vote opening.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  8. Set cloud_roleName in Application Insights

    It's currently hard to distinguish logs in Application insights because requests from different services/deployments all show up with the name "/score". As far as I've seen the only way to identify the service is to use a "startswith" on the "Container Id" customDimension.

    You should therefore set the "cloud_RoleName" field for all logs (requests, exceptions, traces). It should either be set to the service/deployment name, or it should be possible to specify a custom name per deployment (e.g. for allowing us to follow company-wide naming conventions).

    Setting the "cloud_RoleName" also enables other important features in Application Insights, like the Application…

  9. improve new visual interface run execution performance (it's that bad...)

    ml studio was already slow, for the new visual is several times worst, even after creating the default 2 node cluster, things that took one minute on ml studio now go up to 8-10 mins on visual preview?understand the tracking happening below, cluster overhead and all that, but the point is, as it is, it's unusable, some screenshots ...

  11. Ability to run experiments without using SSH port

    A lot of enterprise customers have concerns opening SSH port even with VNet enabled and using Azure ML service tag.

    We should find a way to run experiments on computes like DSVM without opening up access to SSH port.

  12. Add detailed model training progress information in Machine Learning Studio experiment view

    At now, the only training progress indicator in experiment view is a time elapsed counter. The idea is to extend number and types of possible counters while the model is being trained. Such information could possibly be: current training iteration, progress percentage, etc.

  13. Migration from Azure Machine Learning Studio to Visual Interface

    Ideally this should be done automatically for us, but I'd be happy with an export/import flow that lets us migrate manually.

  14. Add possibility to pass parameters to scoring script when deploying an image

    When deploying an image to AML Service, the path of the scoring script is given to the method using the execution_script parameter: ContainerImage.image_configuration(execution_script='score.py', ...). However, there is no argument for passing values to script parameters, which are needed in the init() function to do stuff like fetching passwords from Key Vault and getting sample data for the schema.

    Please add the possibility to pass parameters to the scoring script when deploying and image to AML Service. For example, when creating a Python script step in an AML Pipeline, we can add these parameters as follows: PythonScriptStep(script_name='train.py', arguments=['--workspace_name', 'MyWS', '--model_path', './my_model.pk'].…

  15. Provide ability to do real Machine Learning in Europe North

    Currently on NCv1 with the ancient K80's that Google do not even give away for free on Google Colab is available in North Europe.
    We have huge amounts of data in NE and thus it would be impossible or at least extremely cost prohibitive to move this data over to WE, where there are V100-NCv3 GPU's.
    Even the NCv3 instances are ridiculously underpowered for SOTA ML work.

    Just to give some perspective on how excruciatingly slow these are to work with:
    My private gaming PC at home running a single 2080ti has 2.5x TensorFlops of a NCv1 running 4 K80…

    I hope a function that notify some email when Experiment's Runs is failed.
    I can know whether there is error or not if I open their Experiment manually now.
    But when I run experiment automatically, I want to notify to some email if experiment's Run is failed.
