Tutorial #2 – Advanced Analytics Process


In this hands on tutorial, you will practice the Advanced Analytics Process using Azure technologies to go from GBs of data to operationalized machine learning models in a couple of hours using only a browser and elastic resources in the cloud. You will work with a public dataset - NYC Taxi Trips – to train and deploy one or more models to predict tips paid for a taxi trip. You will conduct exploratory data analysis, create features, sample the data using an SQL Server and IPython Notebook Server virtual machine, and use the data sample in Azure Machine Learning to build and operationalize the model as a web-service, ready for consumption in any application via a web-service API. More details available in this Advanced Analytics walkthrough.
