AWS re:Invent 2016: Predicting Customer Churn with Amazon Machine Learning (MAC307)

Bit Ninja


In this session, we take a specific business problem—predicting Telco customer churn—and explore the practical aspects of building and evaluating an Amazon Machine Learning model. We explore considerations ranging from assigning a dollar value to applying the model using the relative cost of false positive and false negative errors. We discuss all aspects of putting Amazon ML to practical use, including how to build multiple models to choose from, put models into production, and update them. We also discuss using Amazon Redshift and Amazon S3 with Amazon ML.
