The AWS DeepLens Inclusivity Challenge submission period extended to 8/19

We announced the AWS DeepLens Inclusivity Challenge two weeks ago, and how time has flown! In this first challenge, we invite you to create an AWS DeepLens project that fosters inclusion for people of all abilities and helps individuals overcome barriers associated with special needs. For each project that meets the participation criteria, we will […]

Scalable multi-node deep learning training using GPUs in the AWS Cloud 

A key barrier to the wider adoption of deep neural networks on industrial-size datasets is the time and resources required to train them. AlexNet, which won the 2012 ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Competition (ILSVRC) and kicked off the current boom in deep neural networks, took nearly a week to train across the 1.2-million-image, 1000-category […]

Call an Amazon SageMaker model endpoint using Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda

At AWS Machine Learning workshops, customers often ask, “After I deploy an endpoint, where do I go from there?” You can deploy an Amazon SageMaker trained and validated machine learning model as an endpoint in production. Alternatively, you can choose which Amazon SageMaker functionality to use. For example, you could choose just to train a […]

Create a model for predicting orthopedic pathology using Amazon SageMaker

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are gaining momentum in the healthcare industry, especially in healthcare imaging. The Amazon SageMaker approach to ML presents promising potential in the healthcare field. ML is considered a horizontal enabling layer applicable across industries. Within healthcare, this can serve analogous to a radiology or lab report as a […]

Enhanced text classification and word vectors using Amazon SageMaker BlazingText

Today, we are launching several new features for the Amazon SageMaker BlazingText algorithm. Many downstream natural language processing (NLP) tasks like sentiment analysis, named entity recognition, and machine translation require the text data to be converted into real-valued vectors. Customers have been using BlazingText’s highly optimized implementation of the Word2Vec algorithm, for learning these vectors from […]

Build multiclass classifiers with Amazon SageMaker linear learner

Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service for scalable training and hosting of machine learning models. We’re adding multiclass classification support to the linear learner algorithm in Amazon SageMaker. Linear learner already provides convenient APIs for linear models such as logistic regression for ad click prediction, fraud detection, or other classification problems, and linear regression […]
