What is AWS SageMaker?

AWS SageMaker is a cloud machine-learning platform that was launched in November 2017. It lets developers create and train ML models in the cloud. This allows them to deploy them to edge devices and embedded systems. The platform includes Autopilot, GroundTruth, Feature Store, and Jupyter Notebook.


AWS SageMaker Autopilot is a service that creates machine learning models using the SageMaker family of machine learning services. This cloud service lets users easily create and manage automatic jobs that perform various tasks. The service also provides visibility into model evaluation metrics and job progress. The Autopilot dashboard can be accessed from the AWS console. From the dashboard, click on "Endpoints." In the "Automation" pane, you can see the SageMaker jobs in progress. You can then choose to view the results of each job.

The SageMaker Autopilot service is available on Amazon Web Services, which offers free 10-day trial periods. After joining the AWS Sagemaker Autopilot service, you'll gain access to more than 50 hours of video training. This service also allows you to use machine learning without coding.


AWS Sagemaker and GroundTruth are two services that are used to collect and label data from images. These two tools can be used in parallel, but they differ in the ways in which they manage and label data. To use SageMaker, you should create an S3 bucket, label the images in it, and then upload the S3 bucket to your AWS account. Once you have uploaded the images, you should select an output folder for the label data. After that, you can launch the SageMaker service, which is part of your AWS account. You can create a labelling job, which brings up a wizard to let you enter the necessary information.

You can create a new project or monitor your existing projects. You can also view the batches of images generated by the service. You can also request a custom quote for synthetic data. Then, you can start a new synthetic data project, and the service will start generating images.

Feature Store

Feature Store provides the flexibility and reusability to store and retrieve features. Users can create, update, and use features for batch inference, training, and scoring models. The Feature Store supports time series, event-based, and point-in-time correctness data. You can also publish your feature values to serve them in real-time.

Using feature stores makes it possible to store, share, and reuse machine-learning features across your organization. This helps you avoid duplication and reengineering feature pipelines. It also ensures high performance. The Feature Store in AWS Sagemaker is designed to make this process easier.

Feature Store automatically builds an Amazon Glue Data Catalog when you create a new Feature Group. However, you can turn off this feature if you want. The following example shows how to create a single training dataset and use an Amazon Athena query to join the data stored in Offline Store and Feature Store.

Jupyter Notebook

An AWS Sagemaker Notebook provides a convenient tool for exploratory data analysis. Users can explore features, join them, and create a train or test dataset. Sagemaker provides a range of configuration options and can be configured to suit specific needs. For example, they can create a simulated dataset to determine if it has a certain data distribution.

There are several security vulnerabilities with AWS SageMaker and its Jupyter Notebook Instances. These vulnerabilities include executing code on a SageMaker Notebook Instance, accessing the Notebook Instance metadata endpoint, and stealing access tokens for the attached role. These vulnerabilities may allow attackers to read data from S3 buckets, create VPC endpoints, and execute other potentially harmful actions.


The AWS Sagemaker SDK for Python allows you to train your Python model using the services of AWS. It can be used from your notebook instance, or you can create a dedicated training instance. Sagemaker SDK for Python works by utilizing the Scikit-learn k-means classifier.

You need to provide training data and a model to train a model on the AWS Sagemaker SDK. The SDK has various configurations, including seven CPU-optimized instances and nine GPU-accelerated instances. You can use the CPU-optimized workflow to train your model and data. You can also use the GPU-accelerated workload, which requires sending both the model and data to the GPU before training.

In addition to AWS Sagemaker SDK for Python, you can use the SDK to deploy your model to the AWS SageMaker cloud platform. The SDK can also be installed locally and used for training models. SageMaker SDK also offers a host of integrations and other tools and allows you to manage your model locally.
