    To get you started creating and evaluating your own machine learning models, O’Reilly has commissioned a new report: “Data Science in the Cloud, with Azure Machine Learning and R.” We use an in-depth data science example — predicting bicycle rental demand — to show you how to perform basic data science tasks, including data management, data transformation, machine learning, and model evaluation in the Microsoft Azure Machine Learning cloud environment. Using a free-tier Azure ML account, example R scripts, and the data provided, the report provides hands-on experience with this practical data science example.

    Specifically, this report shows you how to complete the following tasks using Azure ML and R:
    ◾Manage and transform data, using a highly scalable cloud environment
    ◾Build and evaluate machine learning models
    ◾Produce R graphics
    ◾Publish your models as web services

  • Hi Lukas,

    This link works for me in both IE and Chrome - could you share information about your environment?

  • Hi AK.

    I'm running Windows 10 ETP with builtin IE, but the same problem is also with the latest Chrome 41. Using local DNS resolver with DNSSEC validation.

    I'll try it later today at home and let you know.
