Using Azure for Machine Learning – Microsoft Faculty Connection

#artificialintelligence

In my spare time, I love learning new technologies and going to hackathons. Our hackathon project Pantrylogs using Artificial Intelligence was selected as one of the 10 Microsoft Imagine Cup UK finalists. I'm interested in learning more about AI, Data Science, and Machine Learning to improve the performances of our application.

The Faculty member receives $250 per month, for 12 months. The Azure machine learning team provided a very nice walkthrough tutorial which covers a lot of the basics. This tutorial is really useful as it takes you through the entire process of creating an AzureML workspace, uploading data, creating an experiment to predict someone's credit risk, building, training, and evaluating the models, publishing your best model as a web service, and calling that web service. Now you need to learn how to import a data set into Azure Machine Learning, and where to find interesting data to build something amazing.
