Microsoft recently announced AI certification Designing and Implementing an Azure AI Solution. (AI-100).
The release date is expected to be 15 March 2019, but you can still try it in beta.
What is the AI-100 Certification?
AI-100 Certification is available to engineers with intermediate-to expert level knowledge of Machine Learning. They are responsible for deploying AI solutions on Azure using various AI & ML technologies.
There were 62 questions, and it took 220 minutes to answer them. The instructions were also read for 20-30 minutes during this time slot.
AI-100 Certification is a test that will assess your ability to use Azure AI Services in a solution. Candidates should be able to design an entire solution, from gathering data to storing or displaying the results after Machine Learning.
Questions for certification were asked from Stream Analytics and Data Factory, Azure ML Studio and Bot Service, Event Hub, Azure IoT Hub. Azure Notebook, Cognitive Services. Storage Account, SQL Data Warehouse. HDInsight. Data Bricks. AI-100 did not have any labs, unlike the administrator series.
As many questions were asked, you will need to have knowledge of machine learning.
“You are deploying image processing solution…”
“You are using this… deep learning solution.”
Have a case study about Bot Service integration with Azure App Services.
