You are the leader of a group of climate scientists who are concerned about the dwindling polar-bear population in the Arctic. As such, your team has placed hundreds of motion-activated cameras at strategic locations throughout the region. Rather than manually examine each photograph to determine whether it contains a polar bear, you have been challenged to devise an automated system that processes data from these cameras in real time and displays an alert on a map when a polar bear is photographed. You need a solution that incorporates real-time stream processing to analyze raw data for potential sightings, and one that incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to determine with a high degree of accuracy whether a photo contains a polar bear. And you need it fast, because climate change won’t wait.In this lab, you will build such a system using Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Cognitive Services. Specifically, you will use an Azure IoT hub to ingest streaming data from simulated cameras, Azure Storage to store photographs, Azure Stream Analytics to process real-time data streams, Azure Functions to process output from Stream Analytics, Microsoft’s Custom Vision Service to analyze photographs for polar pears, Microsoft Power BI to build a dashboard for visualizing results, and Azure SQL Database as a data source for Power BI.

Many teams prefer to define their build and release pipelines using YAML (Yet Another Markup Language). This allows them to access the same pipeline features as those using the visual designer, but with a markup file that can be managed like any other source file.

Today, data is being collected in ever-increasing amounts, at ever-increasing velocities, and in an ever-expanding variety of formats. This explosion of data is colloquially known as the Big Data phenomenon.In order to gain actionable insights into big-data sources, new tools need to be leveraged that allow the data to be cleaned, analyzed, and visualized quickly and efficiently. Azure HDInsight provides a solution to this problem by making it exceedingly simple to create high-performance computing clusters provisioned with Apache Spark and members of the Spark ecosystem. Rather than spend time deploying hardware and installing, configuring, and maintaining software, you can focus on your research and apply your expertise to the data rather than the resources required to analyze that data.Apache Spark is an open-source parallel-processing platform that excels at running large-scale data analytics jobs. Spark’s combined use of in-memory and disk data storage delivers performance improvements that allow it to process some tasks up to 100 times faster than Hadoop. With Microsoft Azure, deploying Apache Spark clusters becomes significantly simpler and gets you working on your data analysis that much sooner.In this lab, you will experience HD Insight with Spark first-hand. After provisioning a Spark cluster, you will use the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer to upload several Jupyter notebooks to the cluster. You will then use these notebooks to explore, visualize, and build a machine-learning model from food-inspection data — more than 100,000 rows of it — collected by the city of Chicago. The goal is to learn how to create and utilize your own Spark clusters, experience the ease with which they are provisioned in Azure, and, if you're new to Spark, get a working introduction to Spark data analytics.
