Is the new Amazon Machine Learning too simple to reap the benefits of predictive analytics?

Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS) promises to put data science within the reach of companies. In that context, Amazon Machine Learning is a predictive analytics service with binary/multiclass classification and linear regression features. The service offers a simple workflow but lacks model selection features and has slow execution times. However, predictive performances are satisfying.

I share my experience using the Amazon Machine Learning service in Amazon Machine Learning: Nice and Easy or Overly Simple?. This article was contributed to the Open Data Science blog.

Update The book on [Effective Amazon Machine Learning](Effective Amazon Machine Learning Book Cover) will soon be available at Packt Publishing.
