Transcribe speech to text in real time using Amazon Transcribe with WebSocket

Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for developers to add speech-to-text capability to applications. In November 2018, we added streaming transcriptions over HTTP/2 to Amazon Transcribe. This enabled users to pass a live audio stream to our service and, in return, receive text transcripts in real time. We […]

Multiregion serverless distributed training with AWS Batch and Amazon SageMaker

Creating a global footprint and access to scale are one of the many best practices at AWS. By creating architectures that take advantage of that scale and also efficient data utilization (in both performance and cost), you can start to see how important access is at scale. For example, within autonomous vehicles (AV) development, data is geographically […]

Building a deep neural net–based surrogate function for global optimization using PyTorch on Amazon SageMaker

Optimization is the process of finding the minimum (or maximum) of a function that depends on some inputs, called design variables. Customer X has the following problem: They are about to release a new car model to be designed for maximum fuel efficiency. In reality, thousands of parameters that represent tuning parameters relating to the […]
