Description

Lab Overview

Binary classification is a kind of machine learning that predicts whether an item belongs to one of two classes. Example applications of binary classification are predicting if an email is spam or not, if a user will buy a new product, or determining if a tissue sample is benign or malignant. In this Lab, you will learn about binary classification and model evaluation in AWS as you diagnose cancer with an Amazon Machine Learning binary classifier. You will train a model with medical data, evaluate the model's performance, and use the model to make diagnoses.

Lab Objectives

Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:

  • Create Amazon Machine Learning datasources, and binary classification models
  • Understand model how recipes can be used to transform data
  • Interpret model evaluation results and how model parameters impact them
  • Perform real-time predictions with the model

Lab Prerequisites

You should be familiar with:

  • Basic Amazon S3 concepts
