Machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) projects are increasingly common at enterprises and startups alike and have been a key innovation engine for Amazon businesses such as Go, Alexa, and Robotics.
Wenming Ye and Miro Enev offer an overview of deep learning along with hands-on Jupyter labs, demos, and instruction. They begin by exploring the trends powering AI/DL adoption and the basics of algorithmic learning in neural networks. Wenming and Miro then dive into how DL is applied in modern business practice and demonstrate how to leverage building blocks from the Amazon ML family of AI services.
