Bring your own pre-trained MXNet or TensorFlow models into Amazon SageMaker

Not only does Amazon SageMaker  provide easy scalability and distribution to train and host ML models, it is modularized so that the process of training a model is decoupled from deploying the model. This means that models that are trained outside of Amazon SageMaker can be brought into SageMaker only to be deployed. This is very useful […]

Use Amazon Mechanical Turk with Amazon SageMaker for supervised learning

Supervised learning needs labels, or annotations, that tell the algorithm what the right answers are in the training phases of your project. In fact, many of the examples of using MXNet, TensorFlow, and PyTorch start with annotated data sets you can use to explore the various features of those frameworks. Unfortunately, when you move from […]

Transfer learning for custom labels using a TensorFlow container and “bring your own algorithm” in Amazon SageMaker

Data scientists and developers can use the Amazon SageMaker fully managed machine learning service to build and train machine learning (ML) models, and then directly deploy them into a production-ready hosted environment. In this blog post we’ll show you  how to use Amazon SageMaker to do transfer learning using a TensorFlow container with our own […]

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 […]
