Build a custom vocabulary to enhance speech-to-text transcription accuracy with Amazon Transcribe

Amazon Transcribe is a fully-managed automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for developers to add speech-to-text capabilities to applications. Depending on your use case, you may have domain-specific terminology that doesn’t transcribe properly (e.g. “EBITDA” or “myocardial infarction”). In this post, we will show you how to leverage the custom vocabulary feature […]

A personalized ‘shop-by-style’ experience using PyTorch on Amazon SageMaker and Amazon Neptune

Remember the screech of the dial-up and plain-text websites? It was in that era that the Amazon.com website launched in the summer of 1995. Like the rest of the web, Amazon.com has gone through a digital experience makeover that includes slick web controls, rich media, multi-channel support, and intelligent content placement. Nonetheless, there are certain […]

Deploying PyTorch inference with MXNet Model Server

Training and inference are crucial components of a machine learning (ML) development cycle. During the training phase, you teach a model to address a specific problem. Through this process, you obtain binary model files ready for use in production. For inference, you can choose among several framework-specific solutions for model deployment, such as TensorFlow Serving […]

Associating prediction results with input data using Amazon SageMaker Batch Transform

When you run predictions on large datasets, you may want to drop some input attributes before running the predictions. This is because those attributes don’t carry any signal or were not part of the dataset used to train your machine learning (ML) model. Similarly, it can be helpful to map the prediction results to all […]
