With the release of SQL Server 2017, Microsoft changed the name of R Services to Machine Learning Services (MLS) and added support for Python, a widely implemented programming language known for its straightforward syntax and code readability. As with the R language, you can use Python to transform and analyze data within the context of a SQL Server database and then return the modified data to a calling application.

Here it is again “Python” being used for the programming language of data.  This series will introduce you to the renamed “R” now called “Machine Learning Services”.  MLS is a simple recipe, take the “R” stats engine, add a pinch of Python, add a cup of training.  This might be an interesting concept.  Guess I need to break out the Python in 30 Days book again.
