DescribeRecipe - Amazon Personalize


Describes a recipe.

A recipe contains three items:

  • An algorithm that trains a model.

  • Hyperparameters that govern the training.

  • Feature transformation information for modifying the input data before training.

Amazon Personalize provides a set of predefined recipes. You specify a recipe when you create a solution with the CreateSolution API. CreateSolution trains a model by using the algorithm in the specified recipe and a training dataset. The solution, when deployed as a campaign, can provide recommendations using the GetRecommendations API.
