Getting Started with AWS Machine Learning

Amazon Web Services and Amazon via Coursera

Overview

Machine learning (ML) is one of the fastest growing areas in technology and a highly sought after skillset in today’s job market. The World Economic Forum states the growth of artificial intelligence (AI) could create 58 million net new jobs in the next few years, yet it’s estimated that currently there are 300,000 AI engineers worldwide, but millions are needed. This means there is a unique and immediate opportunity for you to get started with learning the essential ML concepts that are used to build AI applications – no matter what your skill levels are. Learning the foundations of ML now, will help you keep pace with this growth, expand your skills and even help advance your career.

This course will teach you how to get started with AWS Machine Learning. Key topics include: Machine Learning on AWS, Computer Vision on AWS, and Natural Language Processing (NLP) on AWS. Each topic consists of several modules deep-diving into variety of ML concepts, AWS services as well as insights from experts to put the concepts into practice.

    It is a mashup of Amazon training videos. It starts with a introduction to concepts related to machine learning, continues with and explanation of a machine learning pipeline, and then the last 3 weeks are presentations of main AWS Machine Learning services: Rekognition, SageMaker, GroundTruth, etc.

    It fulfills the objective of getting familiar with machine learning and which Amazon services choose if we want to implement a solution. It is a little bit difficult to follow because the course is not homogeneous: some videos have little detailed explanations, and others are detailed but confusing. The tests are not well designed: they have just 2 or 3 questions about some random points exposed.

    This is a mixed target course. In the first week, it introduces you to ML using AWS. But in the second and third week, there is an assumption that the intended audience for this course are developers who understand computer jargon and are looking for ML solutions.

    There's a heavy marketing (hard sell) for AWS services and products. So I think this is basically an extended marketing program introducing a developer or programmer who is in the market for ML solutions to go with for their company.

    It's worth something, but doesn't meet the need of someone who would like to understand ML in the generic sense instead of a branded service.

    Starting from week#3, course becomes a boring selling pamphlet. Would have expected to learn something useful in here by watching/doing/learning vs. taking step away from thinking. Watching non-engaging videos to upsell their technology becomes grating and dull.

    Also, I couldn't find any information on how to set up free AWS account, that one would expect to accompany this program.

    Got free certification option, but think that was too expensive.
  • Roshni completed this course and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    It was good.very informative..Need this kind of courses more.It would be better if you split the long videos..
