HOW AMAZON’S AUTOGLUON CAN AUTOMATE DEEP LEARNING MODELS WITH JUST A FEW LINES OF CODES

https://analyticsindiamag.com | January 14, 2020

AutoML or automated machine learning has witnessed an exponential rise when it comes to being adopted by the organisations. AutoML can be said as the next wave of machine learning which helps to bridge the gap between talent landscape and complex workflows. Previously in one of our articles, we had discussed the functionality of AutoML and how it solves data science problems. Building complex deep learning models from scratch can be said as one of the most time-consuming and challenging tasks in an organisation. It consists of several layers and requires a considerable amount of time as well as an expert to build a robust model. And, that is why almost all the organisations nowadays have been using AutoML in one way or another to complete a task within a shorter period. E-commerce giant Amazon has been doing a lot when it comes to emerging technologies. A few days ago the e-comm giant unveiled its all-new quantum computing service known as Braket. And, recently, the developers at Amazon have announced the launch of a new open-source library known as AutoGluon.
