Overview of Available AI and ML capabilities in Power BI


There are always many questions about a cheat sheet to shows the existing capability for doing AI and ML in Power BI service and Desktop.

In the above chart, I have summarized the capability of doing AI and ML in Power Service and Desktop for each role.

I have identified three main roles in using power BI:

Data Scientists, Analysts, and Business Intelligence developers. For each of those roles, there are some features that help them to benefit from Power BI features based on their responsibilities that have the same colour as their role icon.

some of these features are the premium capacity that has been identified by a diamond, some are pro account and some available for everyone.

However there are some features like writing R scripts in Power BI desktop that is available for everyone, but if you publish to the web then you need have Pro account.


Of course, there are some limitation and some missing point in the picture, love to hear your comments.
