Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth – Build Highly Accurate Datasets and Reduce Labeling Costs by up to 70%

In 1959, Arthur Samuel defined machine learning as a “field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”. However, there is no deus ex machina: the learning process requires an algorithm (“how to learn”) and a training dataset (“what to learn from”). Today, most machine learning tasks use a technique […]

Amazon Elastic Inference – GPU-Powered Deep Learning Inference Acceleration

One of the reasons for the recent progress of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning is the fantastic computing capabilities of Graphics Processing Units (GPU). About ten years ago, researchers learned how to harness their massive hardware parallelism for Machine Learning and High Performance Computing: curious minds will enjoy the seminal paper (PDF) published in 2009 […]

New – Amazon FSx for Lustre

A pebibyte (PiB – 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes) is an impressive amount of data, slightly less than half of the estimated memory capacity of a human brain. Data lakes, High-Performance Computing (HPC), and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) applications traditionally work at this scale, as do more recent data-intensive applications such as Machine Learning and media processing. Amazon […]

New – Amazon FSx for Windows File Server – Fast, Fully Managed, and Secure

Organizations that want to run Windows applications on the cloud are commonly looking for network file storage that’s fully compatible with their applications and their Windows environments. For example, enterprises use Active Directory for identification and Windows Access Control Lists for fine-grained control over access to folders and files, and their applications typically rely on […]

New – AWS Elemental MediaConnect for ingestion and distribution of video in the cloud.

Before AWS, I worked at an organization that owned and operated their own sports TV channel that provided content by aggregating tens of venues worth of local sports feeds into one 24 hour TV channel. The infrastructure and logistics of operating a broadcast grade network on this scale were immense, and it always proved difficult […]

Amazon Comprehend Medical – Natural Language Processing for Healthcare Customers

As the son of a Gastroenterologist and a Dermatologist, I grew up listening to arcane conversations involving a never-ending stream of complex medical terms: human anatomy, surgical procedures, medication names… and their abbreviations. A fascinating experience for a curious child wondering whether his parents were wizards of some sort and what all this gibberish meant. […]

NEW – AWS Marketplace makes it easier to govern software procurement with Private Marketplace

Over six years ago, we launched with the ambitious goal of providing users of the cloud with the software applications and infrastructure they needed to run their business. Today, more than 200,000 AWS active customers are using software from AWS Marketplace from categories such as security, data and analytics, log analysis and machine learning. Those […]

AWS Ground Station – Ingest and Process Data from Orbiting Satellites

Did you know that there are currently thousands of satellites orbiting the Earth? I certainly did not, and would have guessed a few hundred at most. Today, high school and college students design, fabricate, and launch nano-, pico-, and even femto-satellites such as CubeSats, PocketQubes, and SunCubes. On the commercial side, organizations of any size […]
