Techopedia explains Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS)

Machine learning as a service refers to a number of services cloud providers are offering. The main attraction of these services is that customers can get started quickly with machine learning without having to install software or provision their own servers, just like any other cloud service.

MLaaS offers developers services that include data modeling APIs, machine learning algorithms, data transformations and predictive analytics. Many cloud providers offer machine learning tools, including Microsoft, Amazon and IBM. MLaaS is often offered on a limited trial basis for developers to evaluate before committing to a platform.
