Jude Dcosta, Senior Consultant Neudesic
In this demo we will walk you through the process of building a machine learning model using a Azure SQL Data warehouse for a publicly available data set – NYC taxi trips data set. The procedure follows the Cortana Analytics Process (CAP) workflow . We will show how to set up a Data Science environment , how to load data into the Azure SQL DW and use Azure SQL DW to explore data and engineer the model. We will then show how to build and deploy the model with Azure Machine Learning.
