There’s a new Cognitive Service in town and it detects anomalies. From the article in TechTarget.
The Azure Anomaly Detector service, now in preview, is an addition to Azure Cognitive Services. It takes in customers’ time-series data — information collected at and stamped with specific points in time — and applies the most efficient algorithm for the particular use case from a library of pretrained models. Time-series data presents a historical baseline from which the system can more easily spot deviations. Customers can fine-tune the algorithm’s sensitivity to reduce false-positive results. People with no background in machine learning can use Anomaly Detector thanks to the abstraction layer it provides, according to Microsoft.
