Machine Learning for Azure Folks Without (or With!) a Ph.D.

June 4, 2020 from 7:30-8:30pm
Online meeting

Let’s face it, machine learning is hard. As developers with lots of tasks already, we need all the help we can get. That’s where Microsoft Azure comes in. Azure provides three levels of machine learning services to developers. This talk covers those three levels. First are the Azure Cognitive Services which require almost no knowledge of machine learning. Second is the Azure Machine Learning Studio which lets you design machine learning workflows at a conceptual level. And finally, is the Azure Machine Learning Service which manages the entire machine learning lifecycle. Azure also provides services related to machine learning such as the Azure Bot Framework. There is something for everyone in machine learning from Azure, those who do and do not have a Ph.D.
