Machine Learning or Data Science are one of today's hottest buzzwords. The scenarios in which Machine Learning can be applied are diverse and can range from predicting football scores to personalised recommendations in online shops to predictive maintenance in manufacturing.
In this Microsoft Virtual Academy course I will go through various options on how to build recommendation systems using Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, and thus going beyond just finding the products in retail that are in high demand. We start off with an introduction module on machine learning and recommendation system, followed by the most simple form of a machine learning problem – binary classification. Then we have a closer look at the two main approaches of recommendation systems using RStudio and AzureML. Finally, we go through a scenario using the Recommendations API provided in the Azure Marketplace.
