This course is part of the Microsoft Professional Program Certificate in IoT.
Are you ready to start using machine learning to develop a deeper understanding of your IoT data?
This course uses hands-on lab activities to guide students through a series of machine learning implementations that are common for IoT scenarios, such as predictive maintenance. After completing this course, students will be able to implement predictive analytics using their IoT data.
The course is divided into four modules that cover the following topic areas:
Machine learning for IoT
Data preparation techniques
Predictive maintenance modeling
Fault prediction modeling
What you'll learn
Describe machine learning scenarios and algorithms commonly pertinent to IoT
Explain how to use the IoT solution Accelerator for Predictive Maintenance
Prepare data for machine learning operations and analysis
Apply feature engineering within the analysis process
Choose the appropriate machine learning algorithms for given business scenarios
Identify target variables based on the type of machine learning algorithm
Train, evaluate, and apply various regression models
Evaluate the effectiveness of regression models
Apply deep learning to a predictive maintenance scenario
Before starting this course, students should understand the following:
IoT terminology and business goals
How to use modern software development tools
Basic principles of Python programming
Basic data analytics techniques
General machine learning concepts
This course is completely lab-based. There are no lectures or required reading sections. All of the learning content that you will need is embedded directly into the labs, right where and when you need it. Introductions to tools and technologies, references to additional content, video demonstrations, and code explanations are all built into the labs.
Some assessment questions will be presented during the labs. These questions will help you to prepare for the final assessment.
The course includes four modules, each of which contains two or more lab activities. The lab outline is provided below.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can take this course?
Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
