At Amazon, we’ve been investing deeply in artificial intelligence for over 20 years. Machine learning (ML) algorithms drive many of our internal systems. It's also core to the capabilities our customers experience – from the path optimization in our fulfillment centers, and Amazon.com’s recommendations engine, to Echo powered by Alexa, our drone initiative Prime Air, and our new retail experience Amazon Go. This is just the beginning. Our mission is to share our learnings and ML capabilities as fully managed services, and put them into the hands of every developer and data scientist.
Why machine learning on AWS?
Machine Learning for everyone
Whether you are a data scientist, ML researcher, or developer, AWS offers machine learning services and tools tailored to meet your needs and level of expertise.
API-driven ML services
Developers can easily add intelligence to any application with a diverse selection of pre-trained services that provide computer vision, speech, language analysis, and chatbot functionality.
Broad framework support
AWS supports all the major machine learning frameworks, including TensorFlow, Caffe2, and Apache MXNet, so that you can bring or develop any model you choose.
Breadth of compute options
AWS offers a broad array of compute options for training and inference with powerful GPU-based instances, compute and memory optimized instances, and even FPGAs.
Deep platform integrations
ML services are deeply integrated with the rest of the platform including the data lake and database tools you need to run ML workloads. A data lake on AWS gives you access to the most complete platform for big data.
Choose from a comprehensive set of services for data analysis including data warehousing, business intelligence, batch processing, stream processing, data workflow orchestration.
Control access to resources with granular permission policies. Storage and database services offer strong encryption to keep your data secure. Flexible key management options allow you to choose whether you or AWS will manage the encryption keys.
Consume services as you need them and only for the period you use them. AWS pricing has no upfront fees, termination penalties, or long term contracts. The AWS Free Tier helps you get started with AWS.
