Title: Azure Machine Learning Services
Abstract:
Azure Machine Learning Services is a one-stop shop to train, deploy, automate, manage, and track your machine learning models. You can do that in Python (PyTorch, TensorFlow, and scikit-learn), R, or zero-code/low-code options. At the beginning will spend few minutes to familiarize ourselves with the ML/Data Science practice in general. Then, I will present a few examples of Python and zero-code options to build and deploy machine learning models, including Auto-ML (Automated Machine Learning) in Azure. Towards the end of the session, I will show-case how to consume a ML model from within a Power BI report. This session is appropriate for cloud developers/architects who are new to Machine Learning, but also for data scientist and data engineers who are new to Azure.
Speaker 1: Mustafa Al-Durra
Bio:
Mustafa is a cloud solution architect at Microsoft Canada helping our ISV partners (Independent Software Vendors) on their journey to the intelligent could with Microsoft Azure. In short, he strives to know something about everything in Azure, but claims not to know everything about something in Azure. He feels at home though when working with C#, Visual Studio, Application Integration and Data/AI/ML…

Title: Getting Started with Machine http://Learning.Net and Microsoft AI (updated!)
Abstract:
If you are a developer and you started to feel outside of the Machine Learning world, this session is for you. In this session, we will review the basics of machine learning, how to use existing models and services in standard developer apps, and how to get started with creating your own simple models.

Important: we don’t need any specific math or data skills to create ML models. We will cover the basis of Machine http://Learning.Net, a complete ML framework to work with C#, F# or any other .Net Core language.
And I’m a developer first, so do not expect much slides. Instead, we will code a fully functional app from scratch.

Finally, we will review the current stack of Artificial Intelligence products that Microsoft have in their stack. Microsoft Ignite leave a lot of amazing news, so it’s time to go deep on them.
