Course Description

The AWS Machine Learning Foundations course is an online program offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that is designed to provide an overview of machine learning (ML) and its applications in various industries. This course is targeted towards individuals who are new to ML and want to gain a basic understanding of its concepts and principles. The course is divided into several modules, each of which covers a different aspect of ML. In the first module, students are introduced to ML concepts such as supervised and unsupervised learning, neural networks, and decision trees. They also learn about different types of ML algorithms and how to choose the right one for a specific task. In the second module, students learn about data preprocessing techniques, such as cleaning, transforming, and scaling data, which are essential for preparing data for ML models. They also learn how to use AWS tools, such as Amazon SageMaker, to build and train ML models. The third module covers model evaluation techniques, such as cross-validation and confusion matrices, which are used to assess the accuracy and effectiveness of ML models. Students also learn how to use AWS tools to visualize and analyze model performance. In the fourth module, students learn about deploying ML models to production environments using AWS services, such as Amazon Lambda and Amazon API Gateway. They also learn about the importance of monitoring and maintaining ML models to ensure their ongoing performance and effectiveness. Throughout the course, students have access to a range of resources, including lectures, demos, quizzes, and hands-on exercises. They also have access to a dedicated forum where they can ask questions and collaborate with other students. By the end of the course, students will have gained a solid understanding of ML concepts and principles, as well as practical experience using AWS tools to build, train, evaluate, and deploy ML models. This course is a great starting point for individuals who want to pursue a career in ML or want to incorporate ML into their current job roles. Author: AWS (Udacity)
