Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are making inroads into every conversation. Many people think that AI/ML is a new kid on the block. Surprisingly, it is a blast from the past which seems to be advancing at a rapid pace and will impact our lives significantly.

When I heard about its resurgence, I was curious to learn more about it. I had constraints: close-to-zero AI/ML experience, no data-scientist skills, and little infrastructure at my disposal. I wanted to dip my toes in AI/ML gently and practically, without getting overwhelmed or bored to death by reading obscure and dry books on this subject. I wanted to learn by doing rather than reading.

If you’re in a similar situation with regards to getting started in AI/ML, this session will provide you with necessary information and practical guidance. I’ll share my experience on how I gently jump-started my journey into AI/ML using Azure ML Studio and how you can too. Then we’ll build/tweak/demo an AI/ML example and create a callable API endpoint for us to test and explore.

Furthermore, I’ll point you to resources, tips and tricks, which I’ve found valuable. In the end, you will learn AI/ML fundamentals and how to jump-start your AI/ML journey practically.
