Bring your own hyperparameter optimization algorithm on Amazon SageMaker

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to implement custom, state-of-the-art hyperparameter optimization (HPO) algorithms to tune models on Amazon SageMaker. Amazon SageMaker includes a built-in HPO algorithm, but provides the flexibility to use your own HPO algorithm. We’ll provide you with a framework to incorporate an HPO algorithm that you choose. However, before we […]

Preprocess input data before making predictions using Amazon SageMaker inference pipelines and Scikit-learn

Amazon SageMaker enables developers and data scientists to build, train, tune, and deploy machine learning (ML) models at scale. You can deploy trained ML models for real-time or batch predictions on unseen data, a process known as inference. However, in most cases, the raw input data must be preprocessed and can’t be used directly for […]

Identifying bird species on the edge using the Amazon SageMaker built-in Object Detection algorithm and AWS DeepLens

Custom object detection has become an important enabler for a wide range of industries and use cases—such as finding tumors in MRIs, identifying diseased crops, and monitoring railway platforms. In this blog post, we build a bird identifier based on an annotated public dataset. This type of model could be used in a number of […]

Creating hierarchical label taxonomies using Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth

At re:Invent 2018 we launched Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth, which can Build Highly Accurate Datasets and Reduce Labeling Costs by up to 70% using machine learning. Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth offers easy access to public and private human labelers and provides them with built-in workflows and interfaces for common labeling tasks. Additionally, Amazon SageMaker Ground […]

Using TensorFlow eager execution with Amazon SageMaker script mode

In this blog post, I’ll discuss how to use Amazon SageMaker script mode to train models with TensorFlow’s eager execution mode. Eager execution is the future of TensorFlow; although it is available now as an option in recent versions of TensorFlow 1.x, it will become the default mode of TensorFlow 2. I’ll provide a brief […]

Annotate data for less with Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth and automated data labeling

With Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth, you can easily and inexpensively build more accurately labeled machine learning datasets. To decrease labeling costs, use Ground Truth machine learning to choose “difficult” images that require human annotation and “easy” images that can be automatically labeled with machine learning. This post explains how automated data labeling works and how […]
