Machine learning, which facilitates predictive analytics from large volumes of data by employing algorithms that iteratively learn from that data, is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science. Azure Machine Learning is a cloud-based predictive-analytics service that offers a streamlined experience for data scientists of all skill levels. In this session you will learn about machine learning and how Microsoft has implemented it using Azure Machine Learning. You will also learn how to train a model, apply and test learning algorithms, and deploy a model as a web service.

Session Objectives:

• Learn the basics of Azure Machine Learning

• Prepare data and use it to train a model

• Apply and test learning algorithms

• Deploy a model as a Web Service
