This course shows you how to use a range of AWS services to create intelligent end-to-end applications that incorporate ingestion, storage, preprocessing, machine learning (ML), and connectivity to an application client or server. The course is designed for data scientists looking for clear instruction on how to deploy locally developed ML applications to the AWS platform, and for developers who want to add machine learning capabilities to their applications using AWS services. Prerequisites include: Basic awareness of Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and Amazon Elastic MapReduce; as well as some knowledge of ML concepts like classification and regression analysis, model types, training and performance measures; and a general understanding of Python.
