An introduction to Azure Machine Learning

Azure Machine Learning plays a central role in Cortana Intelligence: discovering useful patterns in all the collected data is essential in advanced analytics. To get started with Azure machine learning you don't need to be an expert: Microsoft provides ready-made models that can be used immediately (Cognitive Services).

For other business problems (e.g. churn) Microsoft provides a template, but we need to tune this template to our business data. And for some analysis problems we need to build machine learning solutions from scratch. In this demo-oriented session you will see demonstrations of these three ways of working with Machine Learning in the Azure cloud.
