Azure Machine Learning: Making Data Science Easy(er)
There’s a ton of buzz around Data Science and Machine Learning.  What is it?  What can we do with it?  Do I have to learn a new language or tool?  In this presentation, we’ll walk through an example of how to use Azure Machine Learning to predict the prices of automobiles.  During this presentation, we’ll see how easy it is to (1) Set up an Azure Machine Learning workspace, (2) Clean up our data for modeling, (3) Train and Evaluate a predictive model and (4) Publish this model as an easily consumable web service.  This will be a highly interactive demonstration, so bring your data hats!
