With Google recently releasing a generative AI-powered search bot called Bard to rival Microsoft's "new Bing" search experience, we put both to the test, feeding them identical questions about Visual Studio and .NET.
Decision trees are useful for relatively small datasets that have a relatively simple underlying structure, and when the trained model must be easily interpretable, explains Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research, who provides step-by-step instructions and full source code.
With new generative AI tools shaking up the software development space, there are now more than 400 AI-infused extensions in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research shows how to predict a person's sex based on their job type, eye color and country of residence.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research says decision trees are useful for relatively small datasets and when the trained model must be easily interpretable, but often don't work well with large data sets and can be susceptible to model overfitting.
"Learning about event-based services changes the way that web applications are built, and is an important part of how the modern web works."
Renowned web-dev expert to dive into the foundations of ASP.NET Core, building RESTful services with ASP.NET Core and documenting services with Swagger.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research says the main advantage of scikit is that it's easy to use (even though most classes have many constructor parameters).
Upon wizard completion, the tool wires everything up, basically abstracting the coding drudgery of manually grabbing NuGet packages and implementing Dependency Injection, Inversion of Control, constructor injections and so on.
"By far the No. 1 reason decision makers don't get enthusiastic about design is that they have no idea how much money they're leaving on the table."
The fundamental technique has been studied for decades, thus creating a huge amount of information and alternate variations that make it hard to tell what is key vs. non-essential information.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research: When multi-class data is skewed toward one or more classes, it's very important to analyze accuracy by class.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research uses full code samples to detail an evolutionary algorithm technique that apparently hasn't been published before.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research says that when quantum computing becomes generally available, evolutionary algorithms for training huge neural networks could become a very important and common technique.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research updates regression techniques and best practices guidance based on experience over the past two years, reflecting rapid advancements in machine learning with deep neural techniques.
Machine learning with deep neural techniques has advanced quickly, so Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research updates regression techniques and best practices guidance based on experience over the past two years.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research explains how to train a network, compute its accuracy, use it to make predictions and save it for use by other programs.
Because machine learning with deep neural techniques has advanced quickly, our resident data scientist updates binary classification techniques and best practices based on experience over the past two years.
What do you do when your simple EF app isn't so simple anymore and entity relationships are getting complex and you're getting worried about performance problems. Can you even use EF in a high-performance, scalable web application?
Microsoft says Razor Pages development in ASP.NET Core can make coding page-focused web-dev scenarios easier and more productive than using the controllers and views integral to another option: the Model View Controller (MVC) approach.
Learn how offerings like Ionic, Cordova and others provide an alternative to straight web-dev, Progressive Web Applications (PWAs), native development and other cross-platform dev frameworks like Xamarin (now .NET MAUI), Flutter, React Native and so on.
Following new best practices, Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research revisits multi-class classification for when the variable to predict has three or more possible values.
The red-hot Blazor project has been burning through the Microsoft-centric web-dev world with its brand-new C#-based experience, but does the hype match the reality?
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research updates previous tutorials with new, cutting-edge deep neural machine learning techniques.
The microservices architectural style is one of the foundational pillars of today's cloud-native development world, along with modern design, containers, backing services and automation.
