Introduction

Learn how to operate machine learning solutions at a cloud-scale using Azure Machine Learning.

This course teaches to leverage the existing knowledge of Python and machine learning to manage data ingestion and preparation, model training and deployment, and machine learning solution monitoring in Microsoft Azure.

Objectives

At the end of the course the students will be able to:

  • Define and prepare the development environment.
  • Prepare data for modeling
  • Perform function engineering
  • Develop models

Student profile

This course is designed for data scientists with existing knowledge of Python and machine learning frameworks like Scikit-Learn, PyTorch, and Tensorflow, who want to build and operate machine learning solutions in the cloud.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students should have:

  • Fundamental knowledge of Microsoft Azure.
  • Experience writing Python code to work with data, using libraries such as Numpy, Pandas, and Matplotlib.
  • An understanding of data science; including how to prepare data and train machine learning models using common machine learning libraries such as Scikit-Learn, PyTorch or Tensorflow.

Course Materials

Students will receive a copy of the official Microsoft documentation in a digital format.

Methodology

This is an active and participatory course through demonstrations, practical exercises and user analysis of all theoretical topics taught by the trainer in order to address real cases of the related product.

The trainer will also use different dynamics that allow group work in the classroom such as challenges, assessment tests and real cases to prepare for the associated Microsoft certification exam if that is the case.

Certification

This course is certified by Microsoft®.

The evaluation is continuous, based on group and individual activities. The trainer will give constant feedback to each participant.

During the course, participants will complete an evaluation test that they must pass with more than 75% of correct answers. They will have one hour for its completion.

The conditions for additional certification services are subject to the terms of the license owner or the approved certification authority.

Accreditation

A Certificate of Attendance will be issued only to students with an attendance of more than 75% and a Diploma of Achievement if they also pass the evaluation test.

Designing and Implementing a Data Science Solution on Azure

Module 1: Getting Started with Azure Machine Learning

In this module, you will learn how to provision an Azure Machine Learning workspace and use it to manage machine learning assets such as data, compute, model training code, logged metrics, and trained models. You will learn how to use the web-based Azure Machine Learning studio interface as well as the Azure Machine Learning SDK and developer tools like Visual Studio Code and Jupyter Notebooks to work with the assets in your workspace.

Lessons

  • Introduction to Azure Machine Learning
  • Working with Azure Machine Learning
  • Lab : Create an Azure Machine Learning Workspace

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Provision an Azure Machine Learning workspace
  • Use tools and code to work with Azure Machine Learning

Module 2: Visual Tools for Machine Learning

This module introduces the Automated Machine Learning and Designer visual tools, which you can use to train, evaluate, and deploy machine learning models without writing any code.

Lessons

  • Automated Machine Learning
  • Azure Machine Learning Designer
  • Lab : Use Automated Machine Learning
  • Lab : Use Azure Machine Learning Designer

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Use automated machine learning to train a machine learning model
  • Use Azure Machine Learning designer to train a model

Module 3: Running Experiments and Training Models

In this module, you will get started with experiments that encapsulate data processing and model training code, and use them to train machine learning models.

Lessons

  • Introduction to Experiments
  • Training and Registering Models
  • Lab : Train Models
  • Lab : Run Experiments

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Run code-based experiments in an Azure Machine Learning workspace
  • Train and register machine learning models

Module 4: Working with Data

Data is a fundamental element in any machine learning workload, so in this module, you will learn how to create and manage datastores and datasets in an Azure Machine Learning workspace, and how to use them in model training experiments.

Lessons

  • Working with Datastores
  • Working with Datasets
  • Lab : Work with Data

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Create and use datastores
  • Create and use datasets

Module 5: Working with Compute

One of the key benefits of the cloud is the ability to leverage compute resources on demand, and use them to scale machine learning processes to an extent that would be infeasible on your own hardware. In this module, you’ll learn how to manage experiment environments that ensure consistent runtime consistency for experiments, and how to create and use compute targets for experiment runs.

Lessons

  • Working with Environments
  • Working with Compute Targets
  • Lab : Work with Compute

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Create and use environments
  • Create and use compute targets

Module 6: Orchestrating Operations with Pipelines

Now that you understand the basics of running workloads as experiments that leverage data assets and compute resources, it’s time to learn how to orchestrate these workloads as pipelines of connected steps. Pipelines are key to implementing an effective Machine Learning Operationalization (ML Ops) solution in Azure, so you’ll explore how to define and run them in this module.

Lessons

  • Introduction to Pipelines
  • Publishing and Running Pipelines
  • Lab : Create a Pipeline

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Create pipelines to automate machine learning workflows
  • Publish and run pipeline services

Module 7: Deploying and Consuming Models

Models are designed to help decision making through predictions, so they’re only useful when deployed and available for an application to consume. In this module learn how to deploy models for real-time inferencing, and for batch inferencing.

Lessons

  • Real-time Inferencing
  • Batch Inferencing
  • Continuous Integration and Delivery
  • Lab : Create a Real-time Inferencing Service
  • Lab : Create a Batch Inferencing Service

After completing this module, you will be able to

  • Publish a model as a real-time inference service
  • Publish a model as a batch inference service
  • Describe techniques to implement continuous integration and delivery

Module 8: Training Optimal Models

By this stage of the course, you’ve learned the end-to-end process for training, deploying, and consuming machine learning models; but how do you ensure your model produces the best predictive outputs for your data? In this module, you’ll explore how you can use hyperparameter tuning and automated machine learning to take advantage of cloud-scale compute and find the best model for your data.

Lessons

  • Hyperparameter Tuning
