The Amplify Framework is an open source project for building cloud-enabled mobile and web applications.
The Amplify CLI enables developers to easily set up the backend and orchestrate advanced use cases such as on-demand indexing of images to auto-update a collection in Amazon Rekognition for entity recognition. The actual image bytes are not stored by Amazon Rekognition. For example, this enables developers to securely upload an image using an Amplify storage object at run time which triggers an auto-update of the collection. The application can then make inference calls using the predictions library to identify the entities that match the previously uploaded image. In addition, you can setup or import a SageMaker endpoint from the Amplify CLI.
Mobile developers can use the new iOS and Android SDK for SageMaker to make inference requests on their custom models hosted on SageMaker via an HTTPS endpoint. The Android SDK also includes support for Amazon Textract that allows developers to extract text and data from scanned documents. These services add to the list of existing AI services supported in iOS and Android SDKs.
