Automated Machine Learning on Azure
Date: May 06, 2021
Time: 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM (Central European)
Topic: Data Science and Machine Learning
What is this session about? Automated machine learning, also referred to as automated ML or AutoML, is the process of automating the time consuming, iterative tasks of machine learning model development. It allows data scientists, analysts, and developers to build ML models with high scale, efficiency, and productivity all while sustaining model quality. Automated ML in Azure Machine Learning is based on a breakthrough from our Microsoft Research division.
Who is it aimed at? Students who want to pursue a career in data science and machine learning.
Why should I attend? Traditional machine learning model development is resource-intensive, requiring significant domain knowledge and time to produce and compare dozens of models. With automated machine learning, you'll accelerate the time it takes to get production-ready ML models with great ease and efficiency.
