What if you could predict the future? How would that impact your business?
Predictive Analytics is a huge step towards making better and more informed business decisions and ultimately predicting future outcomes. As a society, the amount of data we are creating and storing is growing at an unprecedented rate. Making use of this historical data to predict future outcomes and identifying previously unknown relationships is what predictive analytics, data science, and machine learning is all about.
In this session, you will learn the fundamentals of predictive analytics, data science algorithms, and how to use Azure Machine Learning to identify associations and relationships in your data, and predict future outcomes. In addition, you will learn how you can expose this capability to other developers and integrate machine learning into your applications, without being a data scientist or machine learning expert.
- Overview of Predictive Analytics, Data Science, Machine Learning and Algorithms
- How to get started with Azure Machine Learning
- An actionable framework for delivering Machine Learning projects
