Course outline

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: No-Code 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 : Run Experiments

Lab : Train Models

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
