We're going to look at leveraging the Azure Data Science VMs to learn about deep learning. We'll use Python to explore Microsoft CNTK and Tensorflow, as well as looking at H20 and Julia. During the walkthrough, we'll take a short dive into neural networks, how they work, and what is happening under the covers with deep learning.
If you don't have an Azure subscription, you can get a free trial here: https://azure.microsoft.com
We'll be utilizing a Linux Data Science Virtual Machine and will spend the first 10-20 minutes provisioning the VM.
You can follow this walkthrough to provision a DSVM ahead of time, just turn it off after it is provisioned in order to not use up all of the trial resources.
