Setting Up Amazon Machine Learning

You need an AWS account before you can use Amazon Machine Learning for the first time. If you don't have an account, see Sign Up for AWS.

Sign Up for AWS

When you sign up for Amazon Web Services (AWS), your AWS account is automatically signed up for all services in AWS, including Amazon ML. You are charged only for the services that you use. If you have an AWS account already, skip this step. If you don't have an AWS account, use the following procedure to create one.

To sign up for an AWS account

  1. Go to and choose Sign Up.

  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a PIN using the phone keypad.
