5 things you should know about amazon sagemaker

Data Science is surely making its reach out to people, as it is now one of the most trending jobs on the planet earth. With Data Science there are many aspects that come to light – Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Data Management, Data Handling – lots and lots of stuff. To add to those we have numerous tools that give us the privilege to implement this knowledge in practical experiences. Such is a case with Amazon Sagemaker.

In this article today, we are going to discuss the workaround Amazon SageMaker.

1. What Does Amazon SageMaker Do?

Amazon SageMaker is a fully-managed service that enables data scientists and developers to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale. Amazon SageMaker includes modules that can be used together or independently to build, train, and deploy your machine learning models.

2. What is the need of having a platform to develop Machine Learning Solutions?

The major pain points associated with a machine learning project dramatically change as the scale of the project increases. A typical workflow for a machine learning project is demonstrated below.

Developing Machine Learning solutions can be categorized into 3 broad areas:

  1. Build: Here the problem is defined, data is gathered, analyzed it and then clean, transform and engineer the data into the desired form.
  2. Train: More than one machine learning algorithm is leveraged and the model is trained to learn patterns from the engineered data. Based on the model’s performance, tuning hyperparameters and retrain and repeat the process until we have fairly acceptable results.
  3. Deploy: The deployment is done into a production system where it caters its services to the larger ecosystem

This entire process is highly iterative and changes can be expected to loop back the progress to any state in the entire process (as shown in the diagram above).

3. What is the cost of Amazon SageMaker?

As part of the AWS Free Tier, you can get started with Amazon SageMaker for free.

If you have never used SageMaker before, for the first two months, you are offered a monthly free tier of 250 hours of t2.medium or t3.medium notebook usage for building your models, plus 50 hours of m4.xlarge or m5.xlarge for training, plus 125 hours of m4.xlarge or m5.xlarge for deploying your machine learning models for real-time inferencing and batch transform with Amazon SageMaker.

Your free tier starts from the first month when you create your first SageMaker resource.

4. Amazon SageMaker Autopilot

SageMaker Autopilot is the industry’s first automated machine learning capability that gives you complete control and visibility into your ML models.

SageMaker Autopilot automatically inspects raw data, applies feature processors, picks the best set of algorithms, trains and tunes multiple models, tracks their performance, and then ranks the models based on performance, all with just a few clicks.

The result is the best performing model that you can deploy at a fraction of the time normally required to train the model. You get full visibility into how the model was created and what’s in it and SageMaker Autopilot integrates with Amazon SageMaker Studio. You can explore up to 50 different models generated by SageMaker Autopilot inside SageMaker Studio so its easy to pick the best model for your use case.

SageMaker Autopilot can be used by people without machine learning experience to easily produce a model or it can be used by experienced developers to quickly develop a baseline model on which teams can further iterate.

5. Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth

Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth provides automated data labeling using machine learning. SageMaker Ground Truth will first select a random sample of data and send it to Amazon Mechanical Turk to be labeled.

The results are then used to train a labeling model that attempts to label a new sample of raw data automatically. The labels are committed when the model can label the data with a confidence score that meets or exceeds a threshold you set. Where the confidence score falls below your threshold, the data is sent to human labelers.


Amazon SageMaker can really be a useful and handy tool for personnel who don’t have much Machine Learning algorithm understanding, but they still can build, train and deploy models. You can visit the Amazon SageMaker.
