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 want to start pivoting your legacy code into a serverless paradigm this is the platform to target. If you want to start moving away from walled gardens and back into a space where code isn't centralized, costs can be offset by utilizing customer or edge hardware this is the platform to focus on. If you want a model that will scale well past many of the existing serverless frameworks, that won't get caught up in the security weaknesses of current paradigms this is what you need to invest in. If you want modern code to interact with legacy code in a safe way that doesn't expose vulnerabilities you can't patch against wasmCloud is awesome. If you want to write simple code that can jump from cloud to cloud to the user or edge node check it out!

wasmCloud is still in the early stages of development but the product is rapidly evolving and stabilizing and I feel it will be a preferred way of deploying and managing remote, distributed applications in the future.

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.
