Bring your laptop to this session! Azure Machine Learning Studio simplifies machine learning experimentation. In this hands-on tutorial, we will go through the end-to-end process of building, evaluating, fine-tuning and deploying a scalable predictive modelling web service using Azure Machine Learning Studio. By the end of the tutorial, attendees will have a deployed predictive modeling UI of their own, similar to one of these: http://demos.datasciencedojo.com/. All attendees will go through the following hands-on exercises:
• Exploring, visualizing and cleaning a dataset • Building and fine-tuning a predictive model • Evaluating and comparing predictive models • Deploying a predictive model as a full managed, scalable web service • Exposing the deployed predictive model as a web UI.
Microsoft Office and SharePoint Server 2013 introduce a new app model that brings the best of web development to Office and SharePoint. This session shows you how to get started and quickly create apps on this new model with the browser based tooling codenamed “Napa”, and how you can turn those apps into more advanced, rich scenarios with Visual Studio 2013.
