Title: Machine Learning with SQL Server 2016 and 2017
Machine Learning helps developers, Business Analysis to create smart reports and applications. There is a way to leverage the machine learning inside Microsoft SQL Server 2016 and 2017 using two popular machine learning language (R and Python). In this session, I will show how to set up SQL Server 2016 (R services) and 2017 (ML Services) to write R or Python codes. Moreover, a brief discussion of packages that have been recommended by Microsoft to use such as Revoscale and AzureML will be provided to the audience. In addition, a best practice for doing machine learning such as installing desired R packages, create a training model first by exporting the data from SQL Server into Rstudio, after be sure the model works in R studio environment, then copy back the R code into SQL Server stored procedure to create a machine learning model, store the model and use it for further model evaluation, or prediction. All these steps will be explained. Finally, a brief explanation on how we can create a chart and embed it into SQL Server Reporting Services will be delivered. All the explanations will be shown by a proper demo.
