The workshop

After presentations on the prospects and possibilities of Machine Learning, we will present a case and a task with which the participants will be working hands-on in groups.

The aim is to provide the Machine Learning practitioner with new ideas and concepts for the data learning process.

Using the Azure ML platform, the form will be in part presentations and in part hands-on collaborative work in groups on Azure ML.

We will work on open case data, build models for predicting events, and test on held-out data.

We start with a quick talk about the Machine Learning approach, followed by a visual presentation of the task and data.

Following this, the participants will be tasked with the job to build an algorithm that can predict the outcome of a variable from the data set.

The data set presents a real case and will be set up as a (non-competitive) competition in which the groups are challenged to predict the outcome most accurately.

To solve the task, you need to explore the data, visualize the data, enrich the data, build models and finally predict.

Throughout the workshop the groups present their models and we discuss choices and learnings.

May the best predictor win!

Target audience: Software engineers, architects, developers, it-professionals.
Level: Intermediate

The event is held in English.
