Introducing Azure Machine Learning

Shashank Pawar, Business insights Specialist, Microsoft

Eric Bonhomme, Analytics and Information Management Consultant, Oakton

Get an overview of the Azure Machine Learning Service. A browser based workbench for the data science workflow, which includes authoring, evaluating and publishing predictive models. Azure ML can also be used to monetise your creative models using the Azure Market Place, like a app market place for data scientists.

During this session you will see a demonstration of using Azure ML service to build a model and Microsoft’s partner - Oakton will discuss how they plan to leverage it at a large multi-national consumer electronics company. Oakton will discuss the use of Azure ML to run churn, segment and a propensity models over customer transactions data. Leveraging Azure ML allowed them to experimental very quickly and at very low price points – in cents and not have to worry about hardware and software costs.
