Sample Notebooks for Azure Machine Learning service

To run the notebooks in this repository use one of these methods:

Use Azure Notebooks - Jupyter based notebooks in the Azure cloud

  1. Azure Notebooks Import sample notebooks into Azure Notebooks.

  2. Follow the instructions in the 00.configuration notebook to create and connect to a workspace.

  3. Open one of the sample notebooks.

    Make sure the Azure Notebook kernel is set to Python 3.6 when you open a notebook.

    set kernel to Python 3.6

Use your own notebook server

  1. Setup a Jupyter Notebook server and install the Azure Machine Learning SDK.

  2. Clone this repository.

  3. You may need to install other packages for specific notebook.

    • For example, to run the Azure Machine Learning Data Prep notebooks, install the extra dataprep SDK:
     pip install --upgrade azureml-dataprep
  4. Start your notebook server.

  5. Follow the instructions in the 00.configuration notebook to create and connect to a workspace.

  6. Open one of the sample notebooks.

Note: Looking for automated machine learning samples? For your convenience, you can use an installation script instead of the steps below for the automated ML notebooks. Go to the automl folder README and follow the instructions. The script installs all packages needed for notebooks in that folder.
