This list is an attempt to collect and categorize a growing critical literature on algorithms as social concerns. The work included spans sociology, anthropology, science and technology studies, geography, communication, media studies, and legal studies, among others. Our interest in assembling this list was to catalog the emergence of “algorithms” as objects of interest for disciplines beyond mathematics, computer science, and software engineering.
Containing twenty-four design patterns and ten related guidance topics, this guide articulates the benefit of applying patterns by showing how each piece can fit into the big picture of cloud application architectures. It also discusses the benefits and considerations for each pattern. Most of the patterns have code samples or snippets that show how to implement the patterns using the features of Microsoft Azure. However the majority of topics described in this guide are equally relevant to all kinds of distributed systems, whether hosted on Azure or on other cloud platforms.
I’m pleased to announce that Microsoft has completed the acquisition of BlueStripe Software, a leading provider of application management technology.

he Adapt Intent Parser is an open source software library for converting natural language into machine readable data structures. Adapt is lightweight and streamlined and is designed to run on devices with limited computing resources. Adapt takes in natural language and outputs a data structure that includes the intent, a match probability, a tagged list of entities. The software was developed at Mycroft AI by a team led by Sean Fitzgerald, formerly one of the developers of both Siri and Amazon Echo.
It's official! R Tools for Visual Studio, until now only available as a private preview, is now in public preview and available to everyone as a free, open-source download.

Microsoft researchers on Thursday announced a major advance in technology designed to identify the objects in a photograph or video, showcasing a system whose accuracy meets and sometimes exceeds human-level performance.
A core focus of Microsoft Edge is delivering greater interoperability across browsers, so the web just works for users on any device and on any platform. The new Test Drive supports this goal by providing web developers with feature demos that demonstrate how to build interoperable code based on new web platform features. To make this process as easy as possible, we are excited to open-source all our feature demos on GitHub, so anyone can learn and reuse this code in any website (or contribute fixes!).
At TechEd Europe 2014, Microsoft announced the preview of Azure Stream Analytics.
