Machine Learning is fast becoming one of the biggest tools for gaining insights from business data. Businesses that adopt machine learning will stand to gain a significant competitive advantage and yet getting started can be a daunting task. In these sessions we aim to take you step by step through the process of setting up a machine learning environment on the world's leading Cloud Platform, AWS, in your business, so you can also start to benefit from AI.

Now, more than ever, organisations can take advantage of these systems and become data-driven organisations, gaining deep insights from their data, and use these insights to make critical business decisions that will allow them to become a leader in any industry.  


The power of machine learning is the ability of the program to self-learn and investigate multiple patterns within the data simultaneously. This process uncovers trends within the data that were previously indiscoverable by traditional methods.

In a nutshell, computers are able to tap into different types of hidden insights without being explicitly programmed to do so. It does not require someone to understand the data first, with machine learning the understanding of the data comes to you. With the scale that AWS provides in both compute and storage as well as their market leading ML solution, Sagemaker, the world's leading cloud platform is perfectly positioned to help you on your journey to deeper insights.

Despite these obvious advantages many businesses don't know where to start, or know what needs to be considered.

In this 2-part series, Taysols' Chief Data Scientist will

  • help you navigate through the hurdles associated with machine learning so your business can tap into the data at a deeper level;
  • break down and demystify machine learning;
  • show the different types of business problems that are commonly handled by machine learning and
  • provide actionable advice on how to begin a machine learning initiative with the right approach and perspective on AWS.

Part 1: How to build and pick a ML model for your data.

Machine learning is set to become one of the biggest tools for gaining insights from business data.
