The AWS Report – Steven Halliwell – AWS Public Sector

In the latest episode of The AWS Report, I spoke with my colleague Steven Halliwell, Global Director of Education and State/Local Government for AWS. We discussed the digital divide, the ways that AWS is used in education (websites, portals, MOOCs, and learning management systems, to name a few), and some specific success stories. We also talked about the use of big data and machine learning to build systems that adapt to the needs of students, while the course is underway. Steven reviewed the AWS for Education program, and then we transitioned to the topic of state and local government.

Co-host Lee Zen chatted with Steve McPherson of the Elastic MapReduce team on the topic of Public Data Sets.

If you can take a minute to fill out our video survey after you finish watching, I’d really appreciate it! Thanks in advance.
