The Machine Learning Pipeline on AWS

RM7,200.00 RM7,632.00 (after 6% SST)

Course duration: 4 Days
Exam: MLS-C01


Course Objective:

This course explores how to the use of the iterative machine learning (ML) process pipeline to solve a real business problem in a project-based learning environment. Students will learn about each phase of the process pipeline from instructor presentations and demonstrations and then apply that knowledge to complete a project solving one of three business problems: fraud detection, recommendation engines, or flight delays. By the end of the course, students will have successfully built, trained, evaluated, tuned, and deployed an ML model using Amazon SageMaker that solves their selected business problem. Learners with little to no machine learning experience or knowledge will benefit from this course. Basic knowledge of Statistics will be helpful.
