You work in the security department of your company’s IT division. Your company has decided to try to use facial recognition to improve security on their campus. You have been asked to design a system that augments your company’s building access security by scanning the faces of people entering their buildings and recognizing the person as either an employee/contractor/consultant, who is in the company’s database, or visitor, who is not in their database.
Across their many campus locations worldwide your company has over 750,000 employees and over 250,000 contractors and consultants. These workers are all registered in their HR database. Each of these workers has an image of their face stored in the HR database. You have decided to use Amazon Rekognition for your facial recognition solution. On occasion, the Rekognition model fails to recognize visitors to the buildings. What could be the source of the problem? 

5 / 15

You work for a startup ecommerce site that sells various consumer products. Your company has just launched their ecommerce website. The site provides the capability for your users to rate their purchases and the products they have purchased from your ecommerce site. You would like to use the review data to build a recommender machine learning model.
Since your ecommerce site is very new, you don’t yet have a very large review dataset to use for your recommendation model. You have decided to use the Amazon Customer Reviews dataset available from the AWS website as a first data source for your machine learning model. Since your website sells similar products to the products sold on Amazon, you will use the Amazon Customer Reviews dataset as the basis for your initial training runs of your model. Once you have enough data from your own ecommerce site you’ll use that data.
Your goal is to perform sentiment analysis on the review dataset to create your own dataset that will be the source used for your recommender machine learning model. Which set of AWS services would you use to build your data pipeline to produce your sentiment dataset for use by your SageMaker model?

6 / 15

You work as a machine learning specialist for a company that runs car rating website. Your company wants to build a price prediction model that is more accurate than their current model, which is a linear regression model using the age of the car as the single independent variable in the regression to predict the price. You have decided to add the horse power, fuel type, city mpg (miles per gallon), drive wheels, and number of doors as independent variables in your model. You believe that adding these additional independent variables will give you a more accurate prediction of price.
Which type of algorithm will you now use for your prediction?

7 / 15

You work for a financial services firm that wishes to further enhance their fraud detection capabilities. The firm has implemented fine grained transaction logging for all transactions their customers make using their credit cards. The fraud prevention department would like to use this data to produce dashboards to give them insight into their customer’s transaction activity and to provide real-time fraud prediction.
You plan to build a fraud detection model using the transaction observation data with Amazon SageMaker. Each transaction observation has a date-time stamp. In its raw form, the date-time stamp is not very useful in your prediction model since it is unique. Can you make use of the date-time stamp in your fraud prediction model, and if so how?

You work for a car rental firm in their car tracking department. Your team is responsible for building the machine learning solutions to track the company's fleet of cars. Each car is equipped with a GPS vehicle tracking device that emits IoT data. You are building a data transformation solution to take the GPS IoT data and transform it before storing it in S3 for use in your machine learning models.
You have decided to use Kinesis Data Firehose data transformation to pre-process your IoT data before storing it in S3. You have written your lambda function that pre-processes the data and you are now testing your data transformation process flow. When running your tests you see that Kinesis Data Firehose is rejecting every record as a data transformation failure. What could be the reason for the failure?

You work for a flight diagnostics company that builds instrumentation for airline manufacturers. Your company’s instrumentation hardware and software is used to detect flight pattern information such as flight path deviation, as well as airline component malfunction. Your team of machine learning specialists has created a model using the Random Cut Forest algorithm to be used to identify anomalies in the data. The streaming data that your instrumentation processes needs to be cleaned and transformed via feature engineering before passing it to your inference endpoint. You have created the pre-processing and post-processing steps (for cleaning and feature engineering) in your training process.
How can you implement the cleaning and feature engineering steps in your inference processing in the most efficient manner?

10 / 15

You have just landed a position as a machine learning specialist at a large financial services firm. Your new team is working on a fraud detection model using the SageMaker built-in linear learner algorithm. You are gathering the data required for your machine learning model. The dataset you intend to produce will contain well over 5,000 objects that need to be labeled. Your team wants to control the costs of cleaning your data. Therefore, the team has decided to use SageMaker Ground Truth active learning to automate the labeling of your data.
The Ground Truth automated labeling job initially follows this set of steps:
Selects a random sample of data
sends the sample data to human workers
uses the human-labeled data as validation data
runs a SageMaker batch transform using the validation set which generates a quality metric used to estimate the potential quality of auto-labeling the rest of the unlabeled data
runs a SageMaker batch transform on the unlabeled data
data where the expected quality of automatically labeling the data is above the requested level of accuracy is labeled
After performing the above steps, what does Ground Truth do next to complete the labeling of ALL of your data?

You work for a marketing firm that wants to analyze Twitter user stream data to find popular subjects among users who buy products produced by the firm’s clients. You need to analyze the streamed text to find important or relevant repeated common words and phrases and correlate this data to client products. You’ll then include these topics in your client product marketing material.
Which of the following text feature engineering techniques is the best solution for this task?

12 / 15

You work as a machine learning specialist for a sports analytics company. Your company has been contracted by the Major League Baseball Association to perform real-time analytics on baseball statistics as baseball plays unfold live on national television. Your first assignment is to predict the outcome of situational set plays (such as stolen bases or pitch results) as they are about to unfold. Therefore, your model must deliver its predictions in close to real-time.
You have decided to use a SageMaker built-in algorithm. You have looked at classical forecasting methods like autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) and exponential smoothing (ETS) which use one model for each time series in your data. However, you have many time series over which to train.
Based on your performance requirements and your training requirements, which SageMaker built-in algorithm should you use?
