About this book

Automated Machine Learning with Microsoft Azure helps you to build high-performing, accurate machine learning models in record time. It allows anyone to easily harness the power of artificial intelligence and increase the productivity and profitability of your business. With a series of clicks on a guided user interface (GUI), novices and seasoned data scientists alike can train and deploy machine learning solutions to production with ease.

This book will teach you how to use Azure AutoML with both the GUI as well as the AzureML Python software development kit (SDK) in a careful, step-by-step way. First, you'll learn how to prepare data, train models, and register them to your Azure Machine Learning workspace. You'll then discover how to take those models and use them to create both automated batch solutions using machine learning pipelines and real-time scoring solutions using Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Finally, you will be able to use AutoML on your own data to not only train regression, classification, and forecasting models but also use them to solve a wide variety of business problems.

By the end of this Azure book, you'll be able to show your business partners exactly how your ML models are making predictions through automatically generated charts and graphs, earning their trust and respect.
