AWS Academy Data Analytics and Machine Learning Foundation

AWS Academy Data Analytics and Machine Learning Foundation (ICT368)


ICT368 AWS Academy Data Analytics and Machine Learning Foundation includes two major topics. Data Analytics is a series of lab exercises that teach students how to conduct Big Data analysis with practical, real-world examples. Students will learn how to analyze extremely large data sets, and to create visual representations of that data, using a case-study approach. The labs and learning resources provide students with hands-on experience working with data at scale. Machine Learning Foundations introduces students to the concepts and terminology of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. By the end of this course, students will be able to select and apply machine learning services to resolve business problems. They will also be able to label, build, train, and deploy a custom machine learning model through a guided, hands-on approach. This course will prepare students to take the AWS Certified Data Analytics - Specialty and AWS Certified Machine Learning – Specialty level AWS Certification exams.
