Getting started - Amazon Personalize

Getting started

This getting started guide shows you how to provide personalized movie recommendations for your user. The tutorial uses historical data that consists of 100,000 movie ratings on 9,700 movies from 600 users.

To simplify this guide:

  • We rely on the fact that a user saw a movie and not on what they rated the movie. This simplifies the preparation of the training data.

  • We don't record live user interaction events. For information on capturing user events, see Recording events.

To begin, download and prepare the training data. Next, create an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that allows Amazon Personalize to access the data on your behalf. After creating the training data and role, proceed to either Getting started (console) or Getting started (AWS CLI).

When you finish the getting started exercise, to avoid incurring unnecessary charges, follow the steps in Cleaning up resources to delete the resources you created.
