Deep Learning on AWS

Description

In this one-day course, you will learn cloud-based deep learning (DL) solutions on the AWS platform. You will learn how to run your models on the cloud using Amazon EC2€’based deep learning Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and Apache MXNet on AWS frameworks. In addition, you will learn how to use Amazon SageMaker and deploy your deep learning models using AWS services like AWS Lambda and Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) — all while designing intelligent systems on AWS.
