Free Online Resources To Learn AutoML

Leveraging machine learning to process data and workloads has proved to be significantly beneficial for diverse enterprise industries in recent years. Whether it be healthcare, BFSI or retail, machine learning systems turned out to be extremely promising to process millions of data and build complex models. Having said that, the traditional machine learning process involves humans to look after the operations, to code, and to build the models. But, with the crisis in hand, businesses are looking to reduce their workforce, some are even not equipped with resources to spend on employing an experienced data science team. And that’s when AutoML can come to rescue for many.

AutoML, aka automated machine learning, is an automated end-to-end process of deploying machine learning techniques to solve complex business problems and build models. Well, the concept of automated machine learning isn’t novel; instead, it has been the talk of the town since Google first released its AutoML product. Not only AutoML can be used in image recognition and NLP tasks, but also for speech recognition, semi-supervised learning and reinforcement learning.

With the massive potential of AutoML making a mark in the industry, it is the right time for ML practitioners, data scientists as well as non-tech professionals of the organisation to get a more comprehensive understanding of AutoML. Thus, in this article, we will share seven online resources that can help you get your hands-on automated machine learning.
