AWS – Practical Data Science with Amazon SageMaker
In this intermediate-level course, individuals learn how to solve a real-world use case with Machine Learning (ML) and produce actionable results using Amazon SageMaker. This course walks through the stages of a typical data science process for Machine Learning from analyzing and visualizing a dataset to preparing the data, and feature engineering. Individuals will also learn practical aspects of model building, training, tuning, and deployment with Amazon SageMaker. Real life use cases include customer retention analysis to inform customer loyalty programs.
