Few-click segmentation mask labeling in Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth Plus

Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth Plus is a managed data labeling service that makes it easy to label data for machine learning (ML) applications. One common use case is semantic segmentation, which is a computer vision ML technique that involves assigning class labels to individual pixels in an image. For example, in video frames captured by […]

Accelerate time to insight with Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler and the power of Apache Hive

Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler reduces the time it takes to aggregate and prepare data for machine learning (ML) from weeks to minutes in Amazon SageMaker Studio. Data Wrangler enables you to access data from a wide variety of popular sources (Amazon S3, Amazon Athena, Amazon Redshift, Amazon EMR and Snowflake) and over 40 other third-party sources. […]

Using Amazon SageMaker with Point Clouds: Part 1- Ground Truth for 3D labeling

In this two-part series, we demonstrate how to label and train models for 3D object detection tasks. In part 1, we discuss the dataset we’re using, as well as any preprocessing steps, to understand and label data. In part 2, we walk through how to train a model on your dataset and deploy it to […]

Real-time fraud detection using AWS serverless and machine learning services

Online fraud has a widespread impact on businesses and requires an effective end-to-end strategy to detect and prevent new account fraud and account takeovers, and stop suspicious payment transactions. In this post, we show a serverless approach to detect online transaction fraud in near-real time. We show how you can apply this approach to various data streaming and event-driven architectures, depending on the desired outcome and actions to take to prevent fraud (such as alert the user about the fraud or flag the transaction for additional review).

Architect personalized generative AI SaaS applications on Amazon SageMaker

The AI landscape is being reshaped by the rise of generative models capable of synthesizing high-quality data, such as text, images, music, and videos. The course toward democratization of AI helped to further popularize generative AI following the open-source releases for such foundation model families as BERT, T5, GPT, CLIP and, most recently, Stable Diffusion. […]

Use a data-centric approach to minimize the amount of data required to train Amazon SageMaker models

As machine learning (ML) models have improved, data scientists, ML engineers and researchers have shifted more of their attention to defining and bettering data quality. This has led to the emergence of a data-centric approach to ML and various techniques to improve model performance by focusing on data requirements. Applying these techniques allows ML practitioners […]

Use Snowflake as a data source to train ML models with Amazon SageMaker

May 2023: This blog post has been updated to include a workflow that does not require building a custom container. Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed machine learning (ML) service. With SageMaker, data scientists and developers can quickly and easily build and train ML models, and then directly deploy them into a production-ready hosted environment. […]

How Marubeni is optimizing market decisions using AWS machine learning and analytics

Marubeni Power International Inc (MPII) owns and invests in power business platforms in the Americas. An important vertical for MPII is asset management for renewable energy and energy storage assets, which are critical to reduce the carbon intensity of our […]

Portfolio optimization through multidimensional action optimization using Amazon SageMaker RL

Reinforcement learning (RL) encompasses a class of machine learning (ML) techniques that can be used to solve sequential decision-making problems. RL techniques have found widespread applications in numerous domains, including financial services, autonomous navigation, industrial control, and e-commerce. The objective of an RL problem is to train an agent that, given an observation from its […]

Hosting YOLOv8 PyTorch models on Amazon SageMaker Endpoints

Deploying models at scale can be a cumbersome task for many data scientists and machine learning engineers. However, Amazon SageMaker endpoints provide a simple solution for deploying and scaling your machine learning (ML) model inferences. Our last blog post and GitHub repo on hosting a YOLOv5 TensorFlowModel on Amazon SageMaker Endpoints sparked a lot of interest […]
