How to decide between Amazon Rekognition image and video API for video moderation

Almost 80% of today’s web content is user-generated, creating a deluge of content that organizations struggle to analyze with human-only processes. The availability of consumer information helps them make decisions, from buying a new pair of jeans to securing home loans. In a recent survey, 79% of consumers stated they rely on user videos, comments, […]

Scaling distributed training with AWS Trainium and Amazon EKS

Recent developments in deep learning have led to increasingly large models such as GPT-3, BLOOM, and OPT, some of which are already in excess of 100 billion parameters. Although larger models tend to be more powerful, training such models requires significant computational resources. Even with the use of advanced distributed training libraries like FSDP and […]

Explain text classification model predictions using Amazon SageMaker Clarify

Model explainability refers to the process of relating the prediction of a machine learning (ML) model to the input feature values of an instance in humanly understandable terms. This field is often referred to as explainable artificial intelligence (XAI). Amazon SageMaker Clarify is a feature of Amazon SageMaker that enables data scientists and ML engineers […]

Upscale images with Stable Diffusion in Amazon SageMaker JumpStart

In November 2022, we announced that AWS customers can generate images from text with Stable Diffusion models in Amazon SageMaker JumpStart. Today, we announce a new feature that lets you upscale images (resize images without losing quality) with Stable Diffusion models in JumpStart. An image that is low resolution, blurry, and pixelated can be converted […]
