Azure Machine Learning, Azure Synapse Analytics and Spark using Azure Databricks are cloud services that you can use to train, deploy, automate, and manage machine learning models, all at the broad scale that the cloud provides. Azure Cognitive Services are APIs/SDKs/services available to help developers build intelligent applications without the need for AI or data science skills/knowledge. Azure Cognitive Services enable developers to easily add cognitive features such as emotion and video detection; facial, speech, and vision recognition; and speech and language understanding – into their applications. The goal of Azure Cognitive Services is to help developers create applications that can see, hear, speak, understand, and even begin to reason.


The number of participants: up to 30 participants

Approximate duration: 5 hours. Starts on May 23, at 4:00 p.m. till 9:00 p.m. (GMT+3)

The event will be held in English.

This workshop will introduce you to Machine Learning and AI services and tools in Azure. The session will cover Azure Machine Learning, Azure Synapse Analytics, Spark using Azure Databricks, describe other alternatives for machine learning (HDInsight, SQL Server Machine Learning services, etc.), Cognitive Services, Azure Bots and Power Virtual Agents, providing for hands-on experience as well.

The workshop is run fully online, using Zoom and various online collaboration tools.

Technical requirements:

Attendees that want to try the examples during the workshop need to have:

— Laptop;

— Have an Azure subscription (e.g. set up a free trial at , use an Azure Pass free trial, or use a paid subscription);
