Special Guest: Randy DeFauw - Principal Solution Architect, AWS
• Overview: Jeff Bezos said in 2017 that "Machine learning and AI is a horizontal enabling layer. It will empower and improve every business, every government organization, every philanthropy — basically there’s no institution in the world that cannot be improved with machine learning.” To those of us in technology, it means that we all need a baseline level of ML knowledge. In this workshop we’ll survey the ML landscape and do a short hands-on workshop.
• Survey of ML landscape: 15 minutes.
• Hands-on workshop: 1 hour. You’ll build an ML model from scratch and deploy it into production!
• Q&A: 15 minutes
• Requirements: You’ll need an AWS account with permission to use SageMaker, S3, and a few other services. A personal account with admin access is ideal. We’ll give you an idea of the cost of the workshop before we begin, but we don’t expect it to exceed $10 in AWS charges.
