Course description

Are you a CTO, tech leader, or software developer wondering what the Machine Learning hype is all about? Would you like to start experimenting with Machine Learning Models in your organization?

Then this is the course for you!

In this course, you’re going to master Azure Machine Learning Studio. You will learn about loading and processing data, building advanced machine learning pipelines, and analyzing data with Linear Regression, Binary and Multiclass Classification. You will train data models with Decision Trees, Ensembles, Neural Networks, Clustering Algorithms, and Recommendation Systems.

After completing the course, you will be able to design and train your own machine learning pipelines in the cloud for a large number of problem domains. You will have built price and demand prediction models, medical classifiers for healthcare, deep neural networks for object classification, and many other practical AI applications.
