AWS Machine Learning Proof of Concept

What is an AWS Machine Learning PoC?

The first step in a Machine Learning Proof of Concept (PoC) is an assessment of your data. Once's that . This migration is generally advisable to address the following ten steps:

  1. Gathering business requirements
  2. Data Assessment
  3. Data Storage
  4. Data Transfer
  5. Data Security
  6. Data Preparation
  7. Training & Model Development
  8. Monitoring & Management
  9. Cost Optimization
  10. Documentation & Collaboration

How much money does an AWS ML PoC cost?

The hard costs can range from $5k to $25k for AWS Machine Learning Proof of Concepts, however these costs can be offset or completely covered by AWS depending on your annual AWS spend. In many cases by involving a qualified AWS Consulting Partner they can be absolutely free for the end customer!

Going it alone on machine learning can be a very expensive proposition. There are several layers of processing: prep, training, production, and ongoing monitoring. Many companies end up not fully accounting for all of the costs, especially those that are ongoing.

How long does an AWS machine learning PoC take?

This largely depends on how much how well the business requirements can be mapping, and reduced to a clear ROI. Once the business requirements are clearly articulated and initial model can be completed as quickly as in a few weeks, while the ongoing processing of this data in a continuing cycle of improvement. Once in production, the model still requires the following:

  1. Monitoring output
  2. Checking data quality
  3. Model performance evaluation
  4. Gathering feedback from users, stakeholders, and domain experts.
  5. Model retraining
  6. Deployment & versioning
  7. Improving scalability and efficiency.
  8. Ensuring security & Privacy

What services can an AWS machine learning PoC use?

An AWS machine learning PoC can be built using any of the over 30 AWS machine learning services available. In many cases, the proof of concept will involve multiple services, and be built around a core service or two. Some examples of machine learning PoC services include:
