I am an engineer and enterprenuer specialized in information systems for manufacturing companies. I have more than 15 years of experience working for world class companies implementing IT solutions for them. Recently I have did an on-line course where I could learn the basics of Machine Learning using Microsoft Azure ML platform and I believe it has a big potential to be applied on predictive analysis for manufacturing companies. Today most of the manufacturing companies have systems that generate a huge amount of data. Unstructured data such as time series events and measurements from automation and control system and Structured data from relational databases. I planning to provide a new type of services for my customers, most of them large manufacturing companies. The basis of these services would consist of consulting services, to help them to identify opportunities of application of ML to improve their businesses combined with ML algorithms running in the Cloud which they will be able to use in a As-A-Service model, with monthly subscription. My idea is the customer to provide the data to have the ML models trained (by providing XML or CSV files) and after the model has been trained they will be able to use the models in the cloud to make predictions (for example using Excel).
However, I don't have enough skills to develop the machine learning models in Azure alone and I am looking for freelancers that can help me to develop and maintain the models.
First of all, I would like to have one hour consultation meeting with a consultant with deep experience with Azure Machine Learning to verify if my general idea is doable, make adjustments in the model and help me to define the next steps of the business.
In the second phase, I will engage one of my customers for a Proof of Concept.
When applying for this job please share your ideas and suggestions.
