In this project-based course, you will use the Multiclass Neural Network module in Azure Machine Learning Studio to train a neural network to recognize handwritten digits. Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio is a drag-and-drop tool you can use to rapidly build and deploy machine learning models on Azure.
The data used in this course is the popular MNIST data set consisting of 70,000 grayscale images of hand-written digits. You are going to deploy the trained neural network model as an Azure Web service. Azure Web Services provide an interface between an application and a Machine Learning Studio workflow scoring model. You will write a Python application to use the Batch Execution Service and predict the class labels of handwritten digits.
