Amazon Machine Learning (Amazon ML) is a service that makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology. Amazon Machine Learning’s powerful algorithms create machine learning models by finding patterns in your existing data. The service uses these models to process new data and generate predictions for your application. In this session, we will show you how to use machine learning with the data you already have to arrive at accurate and actionable predictions - to create smart applications. You will learn how to use and integrate Amazon ML into your applications to take advantage of predictive analysis in the cloud.

  13. 13. Smart applications by counterexample SELECT c.ID FROM customers c LEFT JOIN orders o ON c.ID = o.customer GROUP BY c.ID HAVING o.date > GETDATE() – 30 We can start by sending the offer to all customers who placed an order in the last 30 days
  14. 14. Smart applications by counterexample SELECT c.ID FROM customers c LEFT JOIN orders o ON c.ID = o.customer GROUP BY c.ID HAVING O.CATEGORY = ‘TOYS’ AND o.date > GETDATE() – 30 …let’s narrow it down to just customers who bought toys
  15. 15. Smart applications by counterexample SELECT c.ID FROM customers c LEFT JOIN orders o ON c.ID = o.customer LEFT JOIN PRODUCTS P ON P.ID = O.PRODUCT GROUP BY c.ID HAVING o.category = ‘toys’ AND ((P.DESCRIPTION LIKE ‘%HELICOPTER%’ AND O.DATE > GETDATE() - 60) OR (COUNT(*) > 2 AND SUM(o.price) > 200 AND o.date > GETDATE() – 30) ) …and expand the query to customers who purchased other toy helicopters recently, or made several expensive toy purchases
  16. 16. Smart applications by counterexample SELECT c.ID FROM customers c LEFT JOIN orders o ON c.ID = o.customer LEFT JOIN products p ON p.ID = o.product GROUP BY c.ID HAVING o.category = ‘toys’ AND ((p.description LIKE ‘%COPTER%’ AND o.date > GETDATE() - 60) OR (COUNT(*) > 2 AND SUM(o.price) > 200 AND o.date > GETDATE() – 30) ) …but what about quadcopters?
