Azure Machine Learning 101
The skills needed for database professionals are constantly evolving. Data science will see tremendous growth over the next few years, and will be a highly sought after skill. If you are interested in learning more about data science, you should know about Azure Machine Learning Studio, a service that is available in a free tier. In this session, Kathi will cover the concepts of machine learning and how to use Azure Machine Learning Studio to create a predictive model. She will also tell you how you can get free training from Microsoft to learn even more.
