Streamline modeling with Amazon SageMaker Studio and the Amazon Experiments SDK

The modeling phase is a highly iterative process in machine learning (ML) projects, where data scientists experiment with various data preprocessing and feature engineering strategies, intertwined with different model architectures, which are then trained with disparate sets of hyperparameter values. This highly iterative process with many moving parts can, over time, manifest into a tremendous […]

Automated monitoring of your machine learning models with Amazon SageMaker Model Monitor and sending predictions to human review workflows using Amazon A2I

When machine learning (ML) is deployed in production, monitoring the model is important for maintaining the quality of predictions. Although the statistical properties of the training data are known in advance, real-life data can gradually deviate over time and impact the prediction results of your model, a phenomenon known as data drift. Detecting these conditions […]
