Kyle Weller has an inception moment with Python and SQL Server Machine Learning Services:
While this example is trivial with the Iris dataset, imagine the additional scale, performance, and security capabilities that you now unlocked. You can use any of the latest open source R/Python packages to build Deep Learning and AI applications on large amounts of data in SQL Server. We also offer leading edge, high-performance algorithms in Microsoft’s RevoScaleR and RevoScalePy APIs. Using these with the latest innovations in the open source world allows you to bring unparalleled selection, performance, and scale to your applications.
Normally I see examples come straight from SQL Server or maybe C#, but it’s a bit fun to see one originate in Python on order to execute Python in SQL Server.
