What you'll learn

  • Explore Amazon SageMaker's advanced features


Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed platform that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale. Julien Simon offers a quick overview of SageMaker. Then, using Jupyter notebooks, he dives into the more advanced features of this service: state-of-the-art built-in algorithms streaming training data with pipe mode, predicting in batch mode, performing hyperparameter optimization, and of course, running deep learning libraries.

This session is sponsored by Amazon Web Services.
