Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite Workshop Video Tutorial Series (2/5): Azure Machine Learning

This video tutorial series walks you through the development of a predictive analytics solution using Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite. The solution is realized as a web application to predict the number of delays with probability of a flight segment between two cities with a particular airline at a particular date and time. The content of this series is based on what is published at by and thanks to Todd Kitta.

The first video is an introduction of how the workshop is structured and highlights a few important items to get you prepared. There are additional four to cover all eight exercises as
