Last year I wrote about AWS Advent, which is an exploration of the vast reaches of AWS in the first 24 days of December. This year, I submitted a post for it. And that post is now up and available. I wrote about Machine Learning (ML) generally and Amazon Machine Learning (AML) specifically. From the post:
AML Models are immutable, as are data sources. If you need to incorporate ongoing data into your model, which is generally a good idea, you need to automate your datasource and model building process so they are repeatable. Then, when you have new data, you can rebuild your model, test it out, and then change which model is “in production” and making predictions.
Plenty more stuff in there about the ethics of ML and the various pieces of the AML pipeline. Check it out.
