Amazon is extending its free machine learning courses to general consumers

Amazon, the U.S e-commerce giant announced on Monday that it would be for the first time offering the Machine Learning (ML) courses to the general consumer, which is used to train its own engineers.

According to a report by Xinhua news agency, consumers can avail the course through the Amazon Web Services (AWS), which includes more than 45 hours of 30 self-service and self-paced digital courses, which are free for developers, data platform engineers, data scientists and business professionals.

Matt Wood, general manager of deep learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Amazon, announced the launch of the course on Cyber Monday, adding that Amazon has used ML across the company for more than 20 years.

He added that the coursework would help in accelerating the growth of ML skills for all AWS developers at the "Machine Learning University", which was exclusively limited for only Amazon employees.

"Each course starts with the fundamentals, and builds on those through real-world examples and labs, allowing developers to explore machine learning through some fun problems we have had to solve at Amazon," Wood said.

These courses include predicting gift wrapping eligibility, optimizing delivery routes, or predicting entertainment award nominations using data from IMDb, an Amazon subsidiary, he said.
