At the Microsoft Build 2020 conference, Microsoft introduced and rolled out an array of new technologies designed to put artificial intelligence (AI) into action. The most impactful news revolved around the idea of responsible AI. To that end, Microsoft delivered a set of open-source frameworks and toolkits for Azure Machine Learning. These toolkits represent an interesting go-to-market approach, encouraging active participation spanning both scientific research and open-source communities.
