In this session, Noah will present an overview of Virtual Machines and Web Sites in Azure. He will cover how to create and manage virtual machines as well as cover the migration of VM's between on-premise and cloud-based hosting. Noah will also discuss Azure Web Sites, including a demo of creating a new Web Site and deploying a simple application.

Machine Learning can often be a daunting subject to tackle much less utilize in a meaningful manner. In this session, attendees will learn how to take their existing data, shape it, and create models that automatically can make principled business decisions directly in their applications. The discussion will include explanations of the data acquisition and shaping process. Additionally, attendees will learn the basics of machine learning - primarily the supervised learning problem.
Eric Horvitz, managing director and distinguished scientist, Microsoft Research, and Josh Tenenbaum, Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, discuss putting a computational lens on scientific theories of rationality, human cognition, and the future of artificial intelligence.
When designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
