*** UPDATE APR-2020 Bring Your Own Algorithm - We take a behind the scene look at the SageMaker Training and Hosting Infrastructure for your own algorithms. With Labs ***

*** UPDATE FEB-2020 Subtitles and Closed Caption Available - I spent several hours cleaning and editing manually for an accurate subtitle ***

*** UPDATE JAN-2020 Timed Practice Test and additional lectures for Exam Preparation added

For  Practice Test, look for the section: 2020 Practice Exam - AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty

For exam overview, gap analysis and preparation strategy, look for 2020 - Overview - AWS Machine Learning Specialty Exam


*** UPDATE DEC-2019  Third update for this month!!! AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty Exam Overview and Preparation Strategies lectures added to the course!  Timed Practice Exam is coming soon!

Also added, two new lectures that gives an overview of all SageMaker Built-in Algorithms, Frameworks and Bring-Your-Own Algorithm Supports

Look for lectures starting with 2020


*** UPDATE DEC-2019.  In the  Neural Network and Deep Learning section, we will look at  the core concepts behind neural networks, why deep learning is popular these days, different network architectures and hands-on labs to build models using Keras, TensorFlow, Apache MxNet: 2020 Deep Learning and Neural Networks


*** UPDATE DEC-2019.  New reference architecture section with hands-on lab that demonstrates how to build a data lake solution using AWS Services and the best practices: 2020 AWS S3 Data Lake Architecture. This topic covers essential services and how they work together for a cohesive solution.  Covers critical topics like S3, Athena, Glue, Kinesis, Security, Optimization, Monitoring and more.


*** UPDATE NOV-2019. AWS Artificial Intelligence material is now live!

Within a few minutes, you will learn about algorithms for sophisticated facial recognition systems, sentiment analysis, conversational interfaces with speech and text and much more.


*** UPDATE OCT-2019. New XGBoost Lectures, Labs, do-it-yourself exercises, quizzes, Autoscaling, high availability,  Monitoring, security, and lots of good stuff

*** UPDATE MAY-2019.  1. Model endpoint integration with hands-on-labs for (Direct Client, Microservice, API Gateway).  2. Hyperparameter Tuning - Learn how to automatically tune hyperparameters ***

*** UPDATE MARCH-12-2019.  I came to know that new accounts are not able to use AWSML Service.  AWS is asking new users to use SageMaker Service. 

I have restructured the course to start with SageMaker Lectures First.  Machine Learning Service Lectures are still available in the later parts of the course.  Newly updated sections start with 2019 prefix.

All source code for SageMaker Course is now available on Github

The new house keeping lectures cover all the steps for setting up code from GitHub.



*** SageMaker Lectures -  DeepAR - Time Series Forecasting, XGBoost - Gradient Boosted Tree algorithm in-depth with hands-on.  XGBoost has won several competitions and is a very popular Regression and Classification Algorithm, Factorization Machine based Recommender Systems and PCA for dimensionality reduction ***


There are several courses on Machine Learning and AI. What is unique about this course?

Here are the top reasons:

1. Cloud-based machine learning keeps you focused on the current best practices.

2. In this course, you will learn the most useful algorithms.  Don’t waste your time sifting through mountains of techniques that are in the wild

4. Cloud-based service is straightforward to integrate with your application and has support for a wide variety of programming languages.

5. Whether you have small data or big data, the elastic nature of the AWS cloud allows you to handle them all.

6. There is also No upfront cost or commitment – Pay only for what you need and use

Hands-on Labs

In this course, you will learn with hands-on labs and work on exciting and challenging problems

What exactly will you learn in this course?

Here are the things that you will learn in this course:

AWS SageMaker

* You will learn how to deploy a Notebook instance on the AWS Cloud.

* You will gain insight into algorithms provided by SageMaker service

* Learn how to train, optimize and deploy your models

AI Services

In the AI Services section of this course,

* You will learn about a set of pre-trained services that you can directly integrate with your application.

* Within a few minutes, you can build image and video analysis applications – like face recognition

* You can develop solutions for natural language processing, like finding sentiment, text translation, and conversational chatbots.


* Learning algorithms is one part of the story - You need to know how to integrate the trained models in your application.

* You will learn how to host your models, scale on-demand, handle failures

* Provide a clean interface for the applications using Lambda and API Gateway

Data Lake

* Data management is one of the most complex and time-consuming activities when working on machine learning projects.

* With AWS, you have a variety of powerful tools for ingesting, cataloging, transforming, securing, visualization of your data assets.

* We will build a data lake solution in this course.

Machine Learning Certification
