Advanced Amazon Redshift: Analytics and Amazon Machine LearningGo to Lab
It's a bit unclear as to why we used a Redshift cluster here over a more traditional DBMS, but other than that it was interesting. I do wish more details on what the ML configuration was doing.
It would be nice to have someone explaining why you do certain things or the pros/cons of one way versus another. The steps were very "monkey see, monkey do" and didn't have much of this type of explanation in the instructions. ALSO, the final SQL statement should have JOINed back to the flight data so that we could see which dates/hours/etc were the most/least likely to have delays.
Good lab, need larger machines or smaller data sets, lots of waiting
good stuff, redshift running pretty slow, ML running slow. My request for buliding model was waiting for 8 minutes before it even started.
