Introduction to Amazon Machine Learning
The goal of this post is to introduce you to machine learning – and specifically Amazon Machine Learning – and help you understand how the cloud can greatly simplify the implementation of a complex machine learning algorithm.
What is Machine Learning?
We humans learn a lot from everything going on around us. Over time, these day-to-day experiences “invisibly” become our knowledge base. Our growing ability to predict outcomes based on past experience can make a huge difference in our lives.
So if people can build out intelligence based on past experiences, why not computers?
Machine Learning, in computer science terms, is a tool for developing useful artificial intelligence. If enough data points can be processed and exposed to software that’s designed to identify patterns, then computers can appear to think for themselves without the need for explicit programming. They can, in other words, teach themselves.
