Cloud, IoT, & Future of Tech Conference - Getting Started with Machine Learning

In April 2017 I was invited to speak at the C# Corner Conference in Delhi, India. As part of this trip, the organizers also invited me to speak at the Cloud, IoT, & Future of Tech Conference at the GLA University in Mathura, India.
Mathura is a city in the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and is about 5 hours drive from Delhi where I was staying. So, we had to wake up at 5 am and leave the hotel at 6 am to have a chance to speak at the conference at about 11. Yes - that's a long drive, but worth it! We could admire the nature and culture of the country while travelling from a city to a more rural area. We also had a great chat with our friend from the C# Corner team Ravi who explained us a lot about India and the culture. That was just some story about the trip:)


Well, we reached the university at about 11:30 and as we stepped in, we were all surprised by the big banner having all the speaker's names. Our surprise does not end here! As we entered the conference room, there was about 200+ students attending the conference! That's massive!






After doing the introductions and meeting the university lecturers, I started my presentation on Machine Learning. I spent most time to talk about the basics of machine learning and explained several scenarios where it can be applied in real life. The students were very attentive and seemed to like it a lot,
I then proceeded with a demo of Azure Machine Learning and provided links to allow the students learn more about the subject.





Please find my slides below:



Cheers!

Query Unstructured Data From SQL Server Using PolyBase

Scope The following article demonstrates how unstructured data and relational data can be queried, joined and processed in a single query using PolyBase, a new feature in SQL Server 2016. Pre-RequisitesIntroduction to Big Data Analytics Using Microsoft Azure Big Data Analytics Using Hive on Microsoft Azure Analyze Twitter Data With Hive in Azure HDInsight Running Hadoop on Linux using Azure HDInsight  Introduction Traditionally, Big Data is processed using Apache Hadoop which is totally fine. But what if the result of this needs to be linked to the traditional Relation Database? For example, assume that from the analysis of tons of application logs, marketing needs to contact some customs that faced problems in an application following a failure in the application.
This problem is solved with PolyBase. PolyBase allows you to use Transact-SQL (T-SQL) statements to access data stored in Hadoop or Azure Blob Storage and query it in an ad-hoc fashion. It also lets you query semi-structure…
