Optimizing ML models for iOS and MacOS devices with Amazon SageMaker Neo and Core ML

Core ML is a machine learning (ML) model format created and supported by Apple that compiles, deploys, and runs on Apple devices. Developers who train their models in popular frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch convert models to Core ML format to deploy them on Apple devices. AWS has automated the model conversion to Core […]

Speeding up TensorFlow, MXNet, and PyTorch inference with Amazon SageMaker Neo

Various machine learning (ML) optimizations are possible at every stage of the flow during or after training. Model compiling is one optimization that creates a more efficient implementation of a trained model. In 2018, we launched Amazon SageMaker Neo to compile machine learning models for many frameworks and many platforms. We created the ML compiler […]

Predicting soccer goals in near real time using computer vision

In a soccer game, fans get excited seeing a player sprint down the sideline during a counterattack or when a team is controlling the ball in the 18-yard box because those actions could lead to goals. However, it is difficult for human eyes to fully capture such fast movements, let alone predict goals. With machine […]
