Feature details

Power Query is adding support for new Artificial Intelligence (AI) Insights, including Cognitive Services and Azure Machine Learning models:

  • Cognitive Services: Power BI provides access to a variety of pretrained models that you can use to transform data in the Power Query editor. The initial set of models consists of language detection, sentiment scoring, key phrase extraction, entity recognition, and image tagging.
  • Azure Machine Learning: In the AI Insights browser in the Power Query editor, analysts can automatically see all the Azure Machine Learning models that have been shared with them. When they select a model, Power BI automatically maps columns from their data to the parameters of the model, when the name and data type match. By applying the model to their query, they add the score from the machine learning model as a new column in their dataset.
