Do you want to know the future? Microsoft Azure Machine Learning (ML) helps you create powerful prediction systems. In this brisk session, Dr. James McCaffrey from Microsoft Research (and one of the developers of Azure ML) will explain what Azure ML can (and can't) do, and present a complete end-to-end logistic regression "Hello World" example. You'll leave this session with a solid understanding of what machine learning is and have all the knowledge you need to begin using Azure ML immediately.

You will learn:

  • Exactly what Azure ML can and cannot do
  • How to create a logistic regression model using Azure ML
  • How to use Azure ML models to make predictions
