AWS KMS-based Encryption Is Now Available for Training and Hosting in Amazon SageMaker

Amazon SageMaker uses throwaway keys, also called transient keys, to encrypt the ML General Purpose storage volumes attached to training and hosting EC2 instances. Because these keys are used only to encrypt the ML storage volumes and are then immediately discarded, the volumes can safely be used to store confidential data. Volumes can be accessed […]

Making neural nets uncool again – AWS style

Just as the goal of Amazon AI is to democratize machine learning with the development of platforms such as Amazon SageMaker, the goal of fast.ai is to level the educational playing field so that anyone can pick up machine learning and be productive. The fast.ai tagline is “Making neural nets uncool again.” This is not a play to decrease the popularity of deep neural networks, but instead to broaden their appeal and accessibility beyond the academic elites who have dominated the research in this area.
