Following the footsteps of Microsoft, Amazon has launched its first product for machine learning service. At the AWS Summit in San Francisco, Amazon Web Services announced a new machine learning platform. Amazon Web Services debuted a service that developers can use to implement machine learning in their applications. Recently, Microsoft announced Azure Machine Learning, which is a service of similar nature.

What is Machine Learning?

Machine Learning teaches a program to learn from the experience and improve their experience. This learning is based on learning the complex patterns and using them to take intelligent decisions. This is achieved by developing intricate algorithms based on computational and statistical concepts. Other concepts used are logic, probability, stats, control theory, pattern recognition, data mining, robotics and more.

Machine learning will help to build smart and data-driven apps that will have the ability to analyze the real-time activities, learning from past and predicting the future.

Amazon Machine Learning uses the same Machine Learning technology that is being used by Amazon’s data scientist community for years. This service looks for the patterns in the existing data and develops a model that is applied on the new data to generate predictions.

Amazon tells that its Machine Learning Service generates billions of predictions each day. Without the use of any software or hardware investment, a developer can start to use the platform for the application development.
