Machine Learning is a very powerful technology to drive your data-driven decisions.

Nowadays it's possible for anyone to exploit the huge volumes of information available through big data and open datasets, whether you are a data scientist, an enterprise developer, or a small startup.
Amazon Machine Learning lets you focus completely on your data, without wasting your time with countless trial models or complicated math. We believe that machine learning as a service has a great potential in making any application smarter, by making it easy to use for developers of all skill levels.

This Lab will offer a very brief overview of the main machine learning concepts and then use an open dataset from UCI to train and use a real-world model for HAR (Human Activity Recognition). We will walk through the whole process, from the dataset analysis and Datasource creation, all the way to model training/evaluation and a real Python script to generate real time predictions. This should give you a general idea of how to use Amazon Machine Learning to build and use your own models.
