    Amazon AMIs has been very useful for the quick setup and implementation of deep learning for data analysis which is something I have used the service for in my own research. We commonly use the service to enable students to run intensive deep learning algorithms for their assessments. This service works well in this scenario as it allows students to quickly set up a suitable environment and get started with little hassle.If you are looking to run simple, surface level deep learning algorithms (kind of contradictory statement I know) then AMI is more complicated than most will need. When it comes to teaching the basics of Machine Learning, this kind of system is unnecessary and there are other alternatives which can be used. That being said this service is a must if you are looking to run complex deep learning via the cloud.

    If you are a small company with insufficient funding, it would be better to go with open source resources because they are free and do the same job. If you are a bigger company with enough resources, then IBM Watson Studio could be better in terms of security and accessibility.

    Pros

    Amazon Deep Learning AMIs

    • You can get several common packages including keras, pytorch and tensorflow setup within an environment ready to code on any AWS instance which saves time
    • Great for virtual applications that helps communicate between various pieces of software
    • Not need to worry about compatibility or any major aspects of setup e.g. GPU configuration

    IBM Watson Studio

    • Integration of IBM Watson APIs such as speech to text, image recognition, personality insights, etc.
    • SPSS modeler and neural network model provide no-code environments for data scientists to build pipelines quickly.
    • Enforced best-practices set up POCs for deployment in production with a minimum of re-work.
    • Estimator validation lets data scientists test and prove different models.

    Cons

    Amazon Deep Learning AMIs

    • Some aspects of the User Interface are quite confusing and activating packages can be a bit convoluted
    • It can be a bit confusing to switch between frameworks for novice users

    IBM Watson Studio

    • The cost is steep and so only companies with resources can afford it
    • It will be nice to have Chinese versions so that Chinese engineers can also use it easily
    • It takes a while to learn how to input different kinds of skin defects for detection

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon Deep Learning AMIs

    Both of these services provide similar functionality and from my experience both are top class services which cover most of your needs. I think ultimately it comes down to what you need each service for. For example Amazon DL AMIs allows for clustering by default meaning I am able to run several clustering algorithms without a problem whereas IBM Watson Studio doesn't provide this functionality. They both provide a wide range of default packages such as Amazon providing caffe-2 and IBM providing sci-kitlearn. My main point is that both are very good services which have very similar functionality, you just need to think about the costs, suitability of features and integration with other services you are using.

    IBM Watson Studio

    The main reason I personally changed over from Azure ML Studio is because it lacked any support for significant custom modelling with packages and services such as TensorFlow, scikit-learn, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit and Spark ML. IBM Watson Studio provides these services and does so in a well integrated and easy to use fashion making it a preferable service over the other services that I have personally used.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Deep Learning AMIs

    • It has made our Data Science/ Machine Learning Courses easier to manage/ need less human input therefore allowing us to increase the cohort size for this degree
    • It has unified a lot of technologies reducing the load on our IT team

    IBM Watson Studio

    • Could instantly show data driven insights to drive 20% incremental revenue over existing results
    • Still don't have a real use case for unstructured data like twitter feed
    • Some of the insights around user actions have driven new projects to automate mundane tasks
