  1. Configurable timeout for experiments and web services

    Some bugs/errors could cause experiments or web service to run longer than expected. This can lead to high costs if several executions never ends.
    There should be configurable timeouts, so that any run that exceeds this timeout is terminated:

    - Workspace global timeout: applies to all experiments and web services in a workspace
    - Experiment and web-service specific timeouts

    • More Help on Error 0000: Internal Error's

      I get lots of these. A little bit more help finding out how to rectify them would be useful. Mainly on the training steps. I suspect its too many columns, but can't tell. Can more information be surfaced in the error logs?

      • It would be great to add an association rules module to AML

        Association rules models can be used in many situations:
        - basket analysis (retail)
        - finding a sequence of events that generate a failure (predictive maintenance)
        - finding paths that conclude to a purchase (web mining analysis)
        ...

        AML should have this kind of algorithm (Apriori, CARMA...) that answer to many business situations.

        Hope it will be coming soon!

            • Put a for loop container in Azure ML like in SSIS

              In SSIS there is a loop container that allows to repeat some parts of the process as a for loop.
              It would be nice to have the same functionality in Azure ML.

              • Custom Named entity recognition in Azure Machine Learning

                Apart from identifying the name, location and organization, it would be useful for customers to define their custom named entities such as Email address, Contact number, date of birth or article date with year.

                • Within Azure ML Python, provide opencv library access.

                  With respect to Python in Azure ML, could opencv library access be provided? Currently, 'import cv2' fails. I am aware there are opencv modules and API in Azure, but I need to train over my own data which are not human faces.

                  • Allow to choose between SQLite and T-SQL in the Apply SQL Transformation module

                    It'll be a really good option write T-SQL scripts in the Apply SQL Transformation module since we are in a MS environment.

                    Thank you.

                    • 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.

                        • Pre-install custom R packages

                          I want to expose an R package I wrote as a web service. Since it's a custom R package they docs say the install has to happen every time the user user my service.

                          There's going to be a lot of repetitive overhead going this route, Any chance I can pre-install my package so the user only has to consume using the web service?

                          • Learning curve

                            Would be very nice to use a built-in Learning Curve plot which can be plotted after using the evaluate model module. This would require the sampledata to be handled by row and have the errors computed for the validation dataset and trainingdataset by row as well. The R2 value can be derived from the algorithm module that is selected and you could add another parameter input for theta. Would make it much easier to analyse if your algorithm is suffering from bias and variance.

                              Provide an undo feature to allow users to revert the previous change and series of changes (by repeatedly applying undo) within the interface. The existing Discard Changes isn't granular enough.

                                    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.

                                      • Upgrade Everything (R, Anaconda, IPython, etc.)

                                        Just about every package is dated. IPython is using version 3.x.x but version 5 is available. Anaconda is using 2.x.x but version 4 is available. R is using 3.1 or Microsoft Open R and both of these are behind by several releases. Updating these would also update Pandas, Sklearn, etc.

                                        • Status bar or % Complete or ETL

                                          Add a [% complete] or Estimated Time Left to experiments in addition to the status "Running". It would be very helpful to have these features in ML Studio.
