The microsoftml module is a collection of Python functions used in machine learning solutions. It includes functions for training and transformations, scoring, text and image analysis, and feature extraction for deriving values from existing data.
The microsoftml module is installed as part of Microsoft Machine Learning Server or SQL Server Machine Learning when you add Python to your installation. You get the full collection of proprietary packages plus a Python distribution with its modules and interpreters. You can use any Python IDE to write Python script calling functions in microsoftml, but the script must run on a computer having either Microsoft Machine Learning Server or SQL Server Machine Learning Server with Python.
Microsoftml and revoscalepy are tightly coupled; data sources used in microsoftml are defined as revoscalepy objects. Compute context limitations in revoscalepy transfer to microsoftml. Namely, all functionality is available for local operations, but switching to a remote compute context requires RxSpark or RxInSQLServer.
