Artificial intelligence: Past, present, but is the future just about machine learning? – BRK2277

This talk covers the current Microsoft AI platform but it neatly brings in the past, even a bit of LISP, and it highlights the current opportunity based on SQL Server 2017, Microsoft R Server 9.1, and Azure services. We combine some of the older stuff (rules-based, algorithmic thinking) with machine learning (probabilistic thinking) for a really a cool way to solve a lot of the issues, especially blackbox-deep-learning efforts.
