Talk Abstract: Machine learning is a category of computer science that involves the prediction of data based on the observation of patterns in previously gathered data. Microsoft has recently released Azure, a cloud computing service that makes machine learning algorithms available building, deploying and managing applications through Microsoft data centers. This workshop will start off with an overview of machine learning and its algorithms. We will then guide you on the basics of building and deploying some simple experiments and then break you off into groups to attempt your own experiments.

A representative from Microsoft Vancouver will participate in workshop.

What to Bring: a laptop
