  1. These Ideas Could be Part of Microsoft Artificial Intelligence Roadmap

    Microsoft has been steadily growing into one of the powerhouses of the modern artificial intelligence(AI) and machine learning(ML) ecosystems. With fierce competition from companies such as Amazon, IBM, Google or Faceboof heating up, innovation and rapid iteration are essential for Microsoft to maintain its leadership position in the space.
    In this post, I would like to discuss some ideas that might be relevant to the short-term roadmap of Microsoft’s AI-ML technologies. The ideas explored here are a combination of market requirements, capabilities that can fill a gap with the competition as well as natural evolutionary steps for the Microsoft AI-ML…

    • to allow all types of Virtual Machines (Win 10, RedHat,...) during free test period

      It makes no sense to leave people test for free during 30 days (not much by the way) and don't allow to test everything. For example, in my case, I wanted to use Win 10 and RedHat machines... I couldn't. To do it I have to disable cost limits and start paying.... What for is it supposed to be the free test period?

      • Show Resource Health on main Portal Overview page

        had issue recently where VM was failed in Resource Health but almost didnt notice as from the Overview page in the Portal everything was looking ok. It would be good so if Resource Health was degraded it showed a big red banner across the Overview page in the Portal , like it does when Provisioning State is failed.

        thx
        Andy.

        • Alternative display resolutions on worker roles

          To better support automation services that create screen shots and perform other rendering tasks, add an option to change screen resolution on worker role instances to other than the default 1024x768px, e.g. 1600x1200px.

          Also, it should be possible to change the default resolution by using PowerShell Set-DisplayResolution.

          This is not related to Remote Desktop screen resolution.

              • Explain clearly what is required for account verification before blog posts are allowed.

                I am trying to post a message on the message boards for Azure functions. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/newthread?category=windowsazureplatform

                It's telling me that I can't attach an image file to the post unless my account has been verified. It doesn't tell me how to verify the account, and in any case, I have a corporate account so no verification should be required.

                Thanks!

                • Add detected source as part of /Translate response

                  Currently there is no way to translate a piece of text and see which source language you identified it as in one request.

                  You first have to make a request with the text to /Detect to get the language, then a request to /Translate to actually translate the text. This adds unnecesarry overhead on your systems because the /Translate call must identify the source language of the text again. It also doubles the cost to use your translator, since a 10 character sentence now would cost 20 characters to translate (due to the duplicate request), and it would take twice…

                  • remove the $200 free Azure offer from Visual Studio Essentials dashboard, and leave only the Developer-oriented offer

                    I was moved to the Visual Studio Essentials subscription as an Open Source developer. The original idea was to try out Azure as a continuous build platform since our project (PyPy) is too large for Appveyor. Unfortunately I mistakenly clicked on the wrong Azure offer on the dashboard, and cannot provision a windows 7 virtual machine, required for our build system (your other offers reboot themselves to update at random times, but that is a different issue). I understand that the other Azure offer on the dashboard would have allowed me to provision a windows7 virtual machine, but once I…

                      • Allow adding DPOR ID programmatically via API

                        For SaaS models it is almost impossible to require the customer to manually insert DPOR ID as part of the installation process.

                        Even if theoretically it could be verified before installation begins, it adds another manual step in which a customer needs to get familiarized with another system.

                        It should be possible to add the DPOR ID programmatically once the customer shares their .publishsettings file (via API). Alternatively, perhaps it should be possible for the Partner to supply a subscription ID of the customer thus proving the DPOR relationship (instead of the customer having to establish said relationship).

                        • Add explicit description to say that an "Owner" doesn't equal to "Admin" in Azure subcription

                          I got a new subscription from manager, and was granted "Owner" privilege in new portal. Then I needed to upload management certificate to Azure subscription for onboarding a service.

                          As many people know, it is only doable to upload management certificate into Azure subscription in classic portal, so I went to the classic portal, and found that I couldn't find that subscription in classic portal.

                          After consulting Azure support, I learnt that in new portal, the "Owner" role doesn't mean I can do everything as an administrator, actually, I need to have "Co-Admin" privilege to upload management certificate in classic…

                                      • Get the zoo of tools a bit clearer in terms of purpose.

                                        I have been quite surprised by the amount of tools (azure CLI2.0, Azure Powershell cmdlets, az command, ...) to use to get out of an issue I faced with recreating a VM from a template because I mistakenly got a VM sysprepd using "stop". Not to mention templates on Github + reuse a VHD.... And the backup/restore vs "expected" snapshot behavior meaning was surprising.
                                        The inability to rename resources is also annoying.

                                        All of this should be somewhere upfront because it really makes the "first impression" somewhat bad.

                                        • to be able to have a new trial account during formation

                                          Following trainings on EDX about Azure and Office 365, but not full time so cannot complete the whole cursus within a one month period.
                                          And cannot have a new trial later on whan I come back for learning (when I have time).
                                          It's not easy to learn efficiently with this constraint.
