At the useR! conference last month, I was pleased to be able to give a couple of talks about the ways that Microsoft is using and integrating R. In my first talk, Hear, See, Move, I shared how data scientists at Microsoft are working to help the disabled:


During the talk I gave some pointers to some of the underlying technology used to build these applications: CNTK, the open-source deep learning framework; Microsoft Cognitive Services, and the suite of machine intelligence APIs including the Computer Vision API; and Azure ML Studio (including its integration with R).

My second talk, R at Microsoft, went more in-depth on the technology side, with a brief overview of the many ways that Microsoft is supporting R and the R Community, and integrating R into data-related products. (The slides from the talk are available for download here.)
