Machine Learning Deployment using AWS SageMaker

Code and associated files

This repository contains code and associated files for deploying ML models using AWS SageMaker. This repository consists of a number of tutorial notebooks for various coding exercises, mini-projects, and project files that will be used to supplement the lessons of the Nanodegree.

Sentiment Analysis Web App is a notebook and collection of Python files to be completed. The result is a deployed RNN performing sentiment analysis on movie reviews complete with publicly accessible API and a simple web page which interacts with the deployed endpoint. This project assumes that you have some familiarity with SageMaker. Completing the XGBoost Sentiment Analysis notebook should suffice.

Setup Instructions

The notebooks provided in this repository are intended to be executed using Amazon’s SageMaker platform. The following is a brief set of instructions on setting up a managed notebook instance using SageMaker, from which the notebooks can be completed and run.

Log in to the AWS console and create a notebook instance

Log in to the AWS console and go to the SageMaker dashboard. Click on ‘Create notebook instance’. The notebook name can be anything and using ml.t2.medium is a good idea as it is covered under the free tier. For the role, creating a new role works fine. Using the default options is also okay. Important to note that you need the notebook instance to have access to S3 resources, which it does by default. In particular, any S3 bucket or objectt with sagemaker in the name is available to the notebook.

Use git to clone the repository into the notebook instance

Once the instance has been started and is accessible, click on ‘open’ to get the Jupyter notebook main page. We will begin by cloning the SageMaker Deployment github repository into the notebook instance. Note that we want to make sure to clone this into the appropriate directory so that the data will be preserved between sessions.

Click on the ‘new’ dropdown menu and select ‘terminal’. By default, the working directory of the terminal instance is the home directory, however, the Jupyter notebook hub’s root directory is under ‘SageMaker’. Enter the appropriate directory and clone the repository as follows.

cd SageMaker
git clone

After you have finished, close the terminal window.

Open and run the notebook of your choice

Now that the repository has been cloned into the notebook instance you may navigate to any of the notebooks that you wish to complete or execute and work with them. Any additional instructions are contained in their respective notebooks.
