Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


A collection of settings used for an AutoML job.



The configuration for generating a candidate for an AutoML job (optional).

Type: AutoMLCandidateGenerationConfig object

Required: No


How long an AutoML job is allowed to run, or how many candidates a job is allowed to generate.

Type: AutoMLJobCompletionCriteria object

Required: No


The configuration for splitting the input training dataset.

Type: AutoMLDataSplitConfig

Type: AutoMLDataSplitConfig object

Required: No


The method that Autopilot uses to train the data. You can either specify the mode manually or let Autopilot choose for you based on the dataset size by selecting AUTO. In AUTO mode, Autopilot chooses ENSEMBLING for datasets smaller than 100 MB, and HYPERPARAMETER_TUNING for larger ones.

The ENSEMBLING mode uses a multi-stack ensemble model to predict classification and regression tasks directly from your dataset. This machine learning mode combines several base models to produce an optimal predictive model. It then uses a stacking ensemble method to combine predictions from contributing members. A multi-stack ensemble model can provide better performance over a single model by combining the predictive capabilities of multiple models. See Autopilot algorithm support for a list of algorithms supported by ENSEMBLING mode.

The HYPERPARAMETER_TUNING (HPO) mode uses the best hyperparameters to train the best version of a model. HPO automatically selects an algorithm for the type of problem you want to solve. Then HPO finds the best hyperparameters according to your objective metric. See Autopilot algorithm support for a list of algorithms supported by HYPERPARAMETER_TUNING mode.
