Azure Machine Learning Hands-on Labs

Last update: Oct 17, 2017

In this post I will provide information on Azure Machine Learning (ML) Hands-on Labs training for developers, which we will be delivering in New York and other technology centers. After this training you will know how to create Azure Machine Learning experiment, select best ML model, convert the training experiment to a predictive experiment, and create application which will use the model.

The training consists of following labs.

  1. Predict Individual’s Income >50K (Estimated: 1 hour).
  2. Convert a training experiment into a predictive experiment in Azure ML by Mostafa Elzoghbi (Estimated: 30 minutes).
  3. Consume an Azure ML web service using Visual Studio 2015 by Mostafa Elzoghbi (Estimated: 30 minutes).
  4. Flight delay prediction by Todd Kitta. (Estimated: 3 hours) Start from Task 2. This model can be reused later in a separate Cortana Intelligence Suite End-to-End Training.

If you need more detailed instructions for self-placed training, you may also use Hands-on Labs from edX courses (videos with theory and quizzes are included).
