Running Principal Component Analysis in Amazon SageMaker

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a very popular technique used by data scientists primarily for dimensionality reduction in numerous applications ranging from stock market prediction to medical image classification. Other uses of PCA include de-noising and feature extraction. PCA is also used as an exploratory data analysis tool. To better understand PCA let’s consider an […]

Build a serverless frontend for an Amazon SageMaker endpoint

Amazon SageMaker provides a powerful platform for building, training, and deploying machine learning models into a production environment on AWS. By combining this powerful platform with the serverless capabilities of Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon API Gateway, and AWS Lambda, it’s possible to transform an Amazon SageMaker endpoint into a web application that accepts […]

Introduction to the Amazon SageMaker Neural Topic Model

Structured and unstructured data are being generated at an unprecedented rate, so you need the right tools to help organize, search, and understand this vast amount of information, it’s challenging to make the data useful. This is especially true for unstructured data, and it’s estimated that over 80% of the data in enterprises is unstructured. Text analytics […]

Amazon SageMaker console now supports training job cloning

Today we are launching the training job cloning feature on the Amazon SageMaker console, which makes it much easier for you to create training jobs based on existing ones. When you use Amazon SageMaker, it’s common to run multiple training jobs using different training sets and identical configuration. It’s also common to adjust a specific […]

Using R with Amazon SageMaker

This blog post describes how to train, deploy, and retrieve predictions from a machine learning (ML) model using Amazon SageMaker and R. The model predicts abalone age as measured by the number of rings in the shell. The reticulate package will be used as an R interface to Amazon SageMaker Python SDK to make API calls to Amazon […]

Using Pipe input mode for Amazon SageMaker algorithms

Today, we are introducing Pipe input mode support for the Amazon SageMaker built-in algorithms. With Pipe input mode, your dataset is streamed directly to your training instances instead of being downloaded first. This means that your training jobs start sooner, finish quicker, and need less disk space. Amazon SageMaker algorithms have been engineered to be […]

Perform a large-scale principal component analysis faster using Amazon SageMaker

In this blog post, we conduct a performance comparison for PCA using Amazon SageMaker, Spark ML, and Scikit-Learn on high-dimensional datasets. SageMaker consistently showed faster computational performance. Refer Figures (1) and (2) at the bottom to see the speed improvements. Principal Component Analysis Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is an unsupervised learning algorithm that attempts to […]
