Why use AWS Machine Learning?

AWS offers the broadest and deepest set of machine learning services and supporting cloud infrastructure, putting machine learning in the hands of every developer, data scientist and expert practitioner.

For developers with no prior machine learning experience, AWS offers a suite of AI services to easily build sophisticated AI-driven applications, such as personalized recommendations, contact centers, live media subtitling, and automated document analysis - often building on AI technology used to power Amazon’s own businesses. For machine learning developers and data scientists Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed ML service to quickly build, train, and deploy ML models at scale. Expert practitioners can develop on the framework of their choice as a managed experience in Amazon SageMaker or use the AWS Deep Learning AMIs (Amazon machine images) which are fully configured with the latest versions of the most popular deep learning framework and tools.

Amazon SageMaker

Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service that provides every developer and data scientist with the ability to build, train, and deploy ML models quickly. SageMaker removes the heavy lifting from each step of the ML process to make it easier to develop high quality models. Traditional ML development is a complex, expensive, iterative process made even harder because there are no integrated tools for the entire ML workflow. You need to stitch together tools and workflows, which is time-consuming and error-prone. SageMaker solves this challenge by providing all of the components used for machine learning in a single toolset so models get to production faster with much less effort and at lower cost.
