Yesterday, at #MSBuild, Microsoft announced version of 1.0 of its machine learning toolkit, ML.NET. ML.NET 1.0 is available now to download from Github.

Microsoft also announced new preview features of Automated machine learning (AutoML) and ML.NET CLI and ML.NET Model Builder tools.

From the announcement:

ML.NET is aimed at providing the end-end workflow for consuming ML into .NET apps across various steps of machine learning (pre-processing, feature engineering, modeling, evaluation and operationalization).

ML.NET 1.0 not only lets you build you custom models, you can also automate. It works everywhere including Windows, PowerBI, Azure, and more. ML.NET is extensible and works with TensorFlow, ONNX, and Infer.NET.

Automated Machine Learning makes your journey with ML simpler by automatically figuring out how to transform your input data and selecting the best performing ML algorithm with the right settings allowing you to build best-in-class custom ML models easily.

Model Builder is a simple UI tool for developers which uses AutoML to build best in class ML models using the dataset you provide. In addition to this, Model Builder also generates model training and model consumption code for the best performing model allowing you to quickly add ML to your existing application.

ML.NET CLI is a dotnet tool which allows for generating ML.NET Models using AutoML and ML.NET. The ML.NET CLI quickly iterates through your dataset for a specific ML Task (currently supports regression and classification) and produces the best model. The CLI in addition to producing the best model also allows users to generate model training and model consumption code for the best performing model.

ML.NET CLI is cross-platform and is an easy add-on to the .NET CLI. The Model Builder Visual Studio extension also uses ML.NET CLI to provide model builder capabilities.
