Save on inference costs by using Amazon SageMaker multi-model endpoints

Businesses are increasingly developing per-user machine learning (ML) models instead of cohort or segment-based models. They train anywhere from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of custom models based on individual user data. For example, a music streaming service trains custom models based on each listener’s music history to personalize music recommendations. A taxi service trains […]

Automating financial decision making with deep reinforcement learning

Machine learning (ML) is routinely used in every sector to make predictions. But beyond simple predictions, making decisions is more complicated because non-optimal short-term decisions are sometimes preferred or even necessary to enable long-term, strategic goals. Optimizing policies to make sequential decisions toward a long-term objective can be learned using a family of ML models […]

Building an NLP-powered search index with Amazon Textract and Amazon Comprehend

Organizations in all industries have a large number of physical documents. It can be difficult to extract text from a scanned document when it contains formats such as tables, forms, paragraphs, and check boxes. Organizations have been addressing these problems with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, but it requires templates for form extraction and custom […]
