Build and monitor parallel forecasts with Azure Batch AI

Batch AI is a cloud service that enables users to submit parallel jobs to a cluster of high performing virtual machines.
To experiment, you can use a simple Python script to run a recurrent neural network model and predict future energy demand.

The known problem of performing and monitoring multiple and parallel forecast models with Parallelization being the key in many forecast scenarios, as it is often needed to build many models concurrently. A typical example of this is when an utility company needs to accurately forecast spikes in demand for energy products and services.

Batch AI supports custom storage solutions including high-performance parallel file systems and can help you with scheduling your jobs and handling failures during potentially long-running jobs.
