Bloomberg Article on Azure ML and Cortana Analytics

Bloomberg ran this article today, about the ever-widening influence of machine learning in Microsoft’s internal operations as well as in its products. The article goes on to talk about how the company is sparking conversations with customers, helping educate them about all the myriad use cases that could greatly benefit from this technology.
