November 2019 QSSUG: AI and Machine Learning

AI and Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence that enables systems to learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention. Machine learning is becoming an increasingly popular topic, and businesses will often request AI/machine learning as a solution to a complex problem. However, machine learning is not a magic crystal ball, and is not appropriate in all situations. In this session, we will go through some of the fundamentals of machine learning models, discuss when these models are appropriate to use, and go through a demo of how to create a basic model in Azure Machine Learning Studio.
