AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty: MLS-C01 Certification Guide

By: Somanath Nanda, Weslley Moura

Overview of this book

The AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty exam tests your competency to perform machine learning (ML) on AWS infrastructure. This book covers the entire exam syllabus using practical examples to help you with your real-world machine learning projects on AWS. Starting with an introduction to machine learning on AWS, you'll learn the fundamentals of machine learning and explore important AWS services for artificial intelligence (AI). You'll then see how to prepare data for machine learning and discover a wide variety of techniques for data manipulation and transformation for different types of variables. The book also shows you how to handle missing data and outliers and takes you through various machine learning tasks such as classification, regression, clustering, forecasting, anomaly detection, text mining, and image processing, along with the specific ML algorithms you need to know to pass the exam. Finally, you'll explore model evaluation, optimization, and deployment and get to grips with deploying models in a production environment and monitoring them. By the end of this book, you'll have gained knowledge of the key challenges in machine learning and the solutions that AWS has released for each of them, along with the tools, methods, and techniques commonly used in each domain of AWS ML.

Analyzing images and videos with Amazon Rekognition

If you need to add powerful visual analysis to your applications, then Amazon Rekognition is the service to opt for. Rekognition Image lets you easily build powerful applications to search, verify, and organize millions of images. Rekognition Video lets you extract motion-based context from stored or live stream videos, and helps you analyze them. Rekognition Video also allows you to index metadata such as objects, activities, scene, celebrities, and faces, making video searches easy. Rekognition Image uses deep neural network models to detect and label thousands of objects and scenes in your images. It helps you capture text in an image, a bit like Optical Character Recognition (OCR). A perfect example is a T-shirt with quotes on it. If you were to take a picture of one and ask Amazon Rekognition to extract the text from it, it would be able to tell you what the text says. You can also perform celebrity recognition using Amazon Rekognition...
