Why Machine learning and IoT with AWS?

Machine learning uses statistical algorithms that learn from existing data, a process called training, in order to make decisions about new data, a process called inference. During training, patterns and relationships in the data are identified to build a model. The model allows a system to make intelligent decisions about data it hasn’t encountered before. Optimizing models compresses the model size so it runs quickly. Training and optimizing machine learning models require massive computing resources, so it is a natural fit for the cloud. AWS with IoT is to introduce AWS Cloud, IAM, Lambda, Redshift, EC2, S3, CloudTrail and etc. Moreover, Participants will work on various tools of AWS cloud platform and create SaaS applications that are highly scalable, highly available and fault-tolerant, etc.
