It sounds too good to be true but Amazon has made it’s Machine Learning course open to all. Amazon has been using machine learning for over 20 years now and they have made major strides with it. According to Dr. Matt Wood, General Manager of Artificial Intelligence, AWS, he states that
” There are more than 30 self-service, self-paced digital courses with more than 45 hours of courses, videos, and labs for four key groups: developers, data scientists, data platform engineers, and business professionals. Each course starts with the fundamentals, and builds on those through real-world examples and labs, allowing developers to explore machine learning through some fun problems we have had to solve at Amazon. These include predicting gift wrapping eligibility, optimizing delivery routes, or predicting entertainment award nominations using data from IMDb (an Amazon subsidiary). Coursework helps consolidate best practices, and demonstrates how to get started on a range of AWS machine learning services, including Amazon SageMaker, AWS DeepLens, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, and Amazon Comprehend.”
Although the courses are free, developers will need to pay for cloud services they use for lab testing. There’s also an exam that’ll get you an “AWS Certified Machine Learning – Specialty” certification, for the price of $150.
