1. Internet of Things Helps Asthma Patients Breathe Easily
Medical device company Aerocrine is reducing device downtime and better servicing hospitals and clinics by using new IoT services from Microsoft including the Azure Stream Analytics real-time event processing engine and Azure Event Hubs scalable publish-subscribe ingestor.
2. The Internet of Anything: A Smartphone App That Lets You Control Your Office Environment

The project, which uses Azure Machine Learning, will sell to both businesses and government agencies in the coming months.
3. Why Azure ML is the Next Big Thing for Machine Learning
“With advanced capabilities, free access, strong support for R, cloud hosting benefits, drag-and-drop development and many more features, Azure ML is ready to take the consumerization of ML to the next level.”
4. Microsoft, five other groups race toward automated image captioning
“Automated image processing could not only improve the Web's search engines, it could help you: automatically tagging all your vacation photos of the Eiffel Tower, for example, rather than hunting them down by the dates that you were actually in Paris.”
