Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service for data science and machine learning (ML) workflows.
You can use Amazon SageMaker to simplify the process of building, training, and deploying ML models.
The SageMaker example notebooks are Jupyter notebooks that demonstrate the usage of Amazon SageMaker.
The quickest setup to run example notebooks includes:
