Machine Learning (ML) is an exciting field that Cloud Computing has helped to accelerate. AWS has played a big part in this with it’s continually expanding range of services from the simply named Machine Learning through to SageMaker. But how do you get started? Thankfully you don’t need to become an expert in linear algebra or statistics, all you need to begin is good idea of the life-cycle of a ML project and a passing familiarity with these AWS services. In this talk we’ll outline a typical ML project and review services such as SageMaker and Rekognition so that you can begin to make use of them in your own projects.
