Machine learning is a powerful approach to make use of historical data in improving business decisions. In the application, algorithms analyse patterns buried in data to create predictive models. The predictive models come in handy when trying to understand future possibilities. It would be plausible to use machine learning to predict the behavior of a customer based on their past interactions and thus target them more effectively.
Amazon offers its managed machine learning service for the purpose of building predictive models, making predictions, and supporting the development of a robust and scalable smart process. It has a powerful technology foundation that is easy for anyone to use, without the requirement for a complex understanding of machine learning algorithms and techniques.
Building machine learning models using Amazon Machine Learning involves three major steps: analysis of data, training models, evaluating models. Data analysis is the process of computing and visualizing data distribution to suggest transformations and optimize model training. Model training extracts predictive patterns from transformed data and stores them. Evaluation is the process of testing the accuracy of derived models.
What makes Amazon Machine Learning so useful is the combination of powerful machine learning algorithms with tools for visual interpretation. Together, they make the process of creation, evaluation and deployment of machine learning models very easy. It has built-in data transformation capability that seamlessly transforms data input into quality predictive models. It further incorporates a console for evaluation and fine-tuning of models that identify weaknesses and strengths to help improve performance and meet business goals.
Integrating data int the machine learning console on Amazon is easy if it is already located in AWS cloud. Alternatively, you can import CSV files in Amazon S3 or query Amazon Redshift or RDS for MySQL databases to use in your machine learning models.
Accurate predictive models require that the data is accurate, which is often not true in real-world datasets that are mostly inconsistent. By using interactive charts on Amazon Machine Learning, it is possible to visualize and explore data sets. That way, it is easy to understand the content and distribution of available data to spot any missing or incorrect sets.
There are two ways that make it very easy to understand the performance of the model: visualization of model behaviour and integration of quality standard metrics. Amazon has tools to help in the interpretation of predictions, for instance, by classifying purchases as either legitimate or fraudulent. It also helps fine-tune the results to provide the optimal results for your application.
Amazon Machine Learning has the API endpoints for the modelling and management of new predictive models for data inside your systems. It is thus possible to automate model creation using the latest data available in your database.
The machine learning algorithms employed by Amazon are robust and scalable, implemented according to the latest industry standards. It is very easy for developers to create models to deal with binary classification, multi-class attributes or regression models. A binary classification can be used to detect spam comments in a website. Multi-class models can determine the route for customer requests such as billing or support. Regression models can anticipate future interactions.
Amazon Machine Learning incorporates common ML data transformations. There is an effort to make suggestions on the transformation model to be applied for users to adjust the transformations applied to their data during model training.
