Create, train, and deploy a billion-parameter language model on terabytes of data with TensorFlow and Amazon SageMaker

The increasing size of language models has been one of the biggest trends in natural language processing (NLP) in recent years. Since 2018, we’ve seen unprecedented development and deployment of ever-larger language models, including BERT and its variants, GPT-2, T-NLG, and GPT-3 (175 billion parameters). These models have pushed the boundaries of possible architectural innovations. […]

Identify potential root cause in business-critical anomalies using Amazon Lookout for Metrics

We are excited to launch a causal contribution analysis capability in Amazon Lookout for Metrics that helps you to understand the potential root causes for the business-critical anomalies in the data. Previously, you were only given the root causes for a single anomaly per measure. You had to analyze to determine if causal relationships existed […]

Use AWS AI and ML services to foster accessibility and inclusion of people with a visual or communication impairment

AWS offers a broad set of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services, including a suite of pre-trained, ready-to-use services for developers with no prior ML experience. In this post, we demonstrate how to use such services to build an application that fosters the inclusion of people with a visual or communication impairment, which […]
