The Machine Learning Pipeline on AWS

This course explores how to use the machine learning (ML) pipeline to solve a real business problem in a project-based learning environment.

Learn how to use the machine learning (ML) pipeline with Amazon SageMaker with hands-on exercises and four days of instruction. You will learn how to frame your business problems as ML problems and use Amazon SageMaker to train, evaluate, tune, and deploy ML models. Hands-on learning is a key component of this course, so you’ll choose a project to work on, and then apply the knowledge and skills you learn to your chosen project in each phase of the pipeline. You’ll have a choice of projects: fraud detection, recommendation engines, or flight delays.
