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.

Amazon DynamoDB for NoSQL database as a service

Amazon DynamoDB is a NoSQL database-as-a-service product within AWS. It's a fully managed key/value and document database. Accessing DynamoDB is easy via its endpoint. The input and output throughputs can be managed or scaled manually or in automatic fashion. It also supports data backup, point-in-time recovery, and data encryption. We will not cover the DynamoDB table structure or key structure in this chapter as this is not required for the certification exam. However, it is good to have a basic knowledge of them. For more details, please refer to the AWS docs available here: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/amazondynamodb/latest/developerguide/SQLtoNoSQL.html.
