Intro to AWS Machine Learning Services

AWS Machine Learning stack has 3 key layers

For experts, it provides a baseline to create deep learning models, training them and doing inference and getting the data from the models into the production applications.

AWS also provides Optimized Instances and Machine Images (AMI — Amazon Machine Image) which are designed for experts to get started quickly using their preferred framework.

Deep Learning AMI has all the major frameworks like —

For those who are looking for fully managed platforms for building models using their data, AWS provides —

API based tools

Machine Learning is the power of an underlying architecture that builds on the quality of the underlying data.

So, to be good at machine learning we would need a Data Store that is scalable, available, secure and flexible. This data lake must handle extremely large datasets. For this AWS provides the following options

Amazon S3 (used as a Data Lake)

Data Analytics —

Amazon EMR (provides access to frameworks like)

Most choose AWS because it provides all the capabilities needed to do machine learning which works together very well.
