The tedious but necessary process of selecting, testing, and tweaking machine learning models that power many of today’s AI systems is too time-consuming. Automated ML is at the forefront of Microsoft’s push to make Azure ML an end-to-end solution for anyone who wants to build and train models that make predictions from data and then deploy them anywhere—in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

Join Danielle Dean for a surprising conversation about a data scientist’s dilemma, a researcher’s ingenuity, and how cloud, data, and AI came together to help build automated ML.
