I can’t wait to get my hands on Amazon Machine Learning service that was launched on Friday Apr 10, 2015. Apparently in an internal experiment they found that it took some of their developers 20 minutes to solve a problem that took another pair 45 days. They say that none of these developers had prior experience in machine learning, and both models apparently achieved the same accuracy of 92 percent. No matter how you look at it, that seems exaggerated. Hence, my peaked curiosity to play with it in the coming days. I will post results and experience here soon.
In the meantime, if you are wondering what can they be used for, below are some of Amazon’s suggested use cases.
