Working of AWS Amazon Personalize
AWS Amazon Personalize makes use of machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to automate and accelerate the above process to deliver real-time analytics and recommendations based on user demographics. This solution brings in the right balance of accurate data and technology to generate better customer personalization results.

Businesses are struggling to get ML/AI capacities into their applications to streamline activities such as mapping user personas, user recommendations, custom-made promotions and displaying search results in accordance to the user's needs. Getting your development team focused on these tasks isn’t easy as these are complex systems and requires investing time, skills and cost.
For most of the SMB’s, including larger enterprises it is not possible to maintain a team of machine learning experts. Amazon Personalize gives developers the entire process with just an Amazon Personalize API (refer above figure). Even developers with no deep AI/ML programming skills, can develop, train, and install the solutions by using AWS Console or AWS SDK. The Amazon Personalize takes the input data then analyzes and classifies it to choose the appropriate algorithm for the personalization model to make recommendations. Simply put, working of Amazon Personalize can be presented as: analyze (data), classify, train, deploy, and make recommendations
