Course Overview

This course explores how to the use of the iterative machine learning (ML) process pipeline to solve a real business problem in a project-based learning environment. Students will learn about each phase of the process pipeline from instructor presentations and demonstrations and then apply that knowledge to complete a project solving one of three business problems: fraud detection, recommendation engines, or flight delays.

By the end of the course, students will have successfully built, trained, evaluated, tuned, and deployed an ML model using Amazon SageMaker that solves their selected business problem. Learners with little to no machine learning experience or knowledge will benefit from this course. Basic knowledge of Statistics will be helpful.

Course Objectives

  • In this course, you will:
  • Select and justify the appropriate ML approach for a given business problem
  • Use the ML pipeline to solve a specific business problem
  • Train, evaluate, deploy, and tune an ML model using Amazon SageMaker
  • Describe some of the best practices for designing scalable, cost-optimized, and secure ML pipelines in AWS
  • Apply machine learning to a real-life business problem after the course is complete

Target Audience

This course is intended for:

  • Developers
  • Solutions Architects
  • Data Engineers
  • Anyone who wants to learn about the ML pipeline via Amazon SageMaker, even if you have little to no experience with machine learning.

Prerequisites

We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • Basic knowledge of Python
  • Basic understanding of AWS Cloud infrastructure (Amazon S3 and Amazon CloudWatch)
  • Basic understanding of working in a Jupyter notebook environment
