A UseR’s Introduction to Machine Learning in AWS

September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Zoom link will be posted a few days before the event.

** Abstract **

“The cloud” can be intimidating, but with a few packages you can get up and running with a deep learning model on a giant computer in no time. In this talk, I’ll introduce one tool for doing ML in the cloud, AWS SageMaker. We’ll walk through all the code and tools needed to make an image classification algorithm on one of the toughest problems of our time: predicting what rating a dog’s photo will get from WeRateDogs (@dog_rates). No background in deep learning, image classification, or working in the cloud needed!
