Talk Title: And Then There Are Algorithms

What are algorithms? How can I build a machine learning model? In machine learning, training large models on a massive amount of data usually improves results. Our customers report, however, that training such models and deploying them is either operationally prohibitive or outright impossible for them. At Amazon, we created a collection of machine learning algorithms that scale to any amount of data, including k-means clustering for data segmentation, factorisation machines for recommendations, and time-series forecasting. This talk will discuss those algorithms, understand where and how they can be used, and our design choices.
