Overview of this book

Amazon SageMaker enables you to quickly build, train, and deploy machine learning (ML) models at scale, without managing any infrastructure. It helps you focus on the ML problem at hand and deploy high-quality models by removing the heavy lifting typically involved in each step of the ML process. This book is a comprehensive guide for data scientists and ML developers who want to learn the ins and outs of Amazon SageMaker. You’ll understand how to use various modules of SageMaker as a single toolset to solve the challenges faced in ML. As you progress, you’ll cover features such as AutoML, built-in algorithms and frameworks, and the option for writing your own code and algorithms to build ML models. Later, the book will show you how to integrate Amazon SageMaker with popular deep learning libraries such as TensorFlow and PyTorch to increase the capabilities of existing models. You’ll also learn to get the models to production faster with minimum effort and at a lower cost. Finally, you’ll explore how to use Amazon SageMaker Debugger to analyze, detect, and highlight problems to understand the current model state and improve model accuracy. By the end of this Amazon book, you’ll be able to use Amazon SageMaker on the full spectrum of ML workflows, from experimentation, training, and monitoring to scaling, deployment, and automation.

As you can see, these three algorithms make it easy to train CV models. Even with default hyperparameters, we get good results pretty quickly. Still, we start feeling the need to scale our training jobs. Don't worry: once the relevant features have been covered in future chapters, we'll revisit some of our CV examples and we'll scale them radically!

In this chapter, you learned about the image classification, object detection, and semantic segmentation algorithms. You also learned how to prepare datasets in image, RecordIO, and SageMaker Ground Truth formats. Labeling and preparing data is a critical step that takes a lot of work, and we covered it in great detail. Finally, you learned how to use the SageMaker SDK to train and deploy models with the three algorithms, as well as how to interpret results.

In the next chapter, you will learn how to use built-in algorithms for natural language processing.
