Intelligently connect to customers using machine learning in the COVID-19 pandemic

The pandemic has changed how people interact, how we receive information, and how we get help. It has shifted much of what used to happen in-person to online. Many of our customers are using machine learning (ML) technology to facilitate that transition, from new remote cloud contact centers, to chatbots, to more personalized engagements online. […]

Training and serving H2O models using Amazon SageMaker

Model training and serving steps are two essential pieces of a successful end-to-end machine learning (ML) pipeline. These two steps often require different software and hardware setups to provide the best mix for a production environment. Model training is optimized for a low-cost, feasible total run duration, scientific flexibility, and model interpretability objectives, whereas model […]

Facebook uses Amazon EC2 to evaluate the Deepfake Detection Challenge

In October 2019, AWS announced that it was working with Facebook, Microsoft, and the Partnership on AI on the first Deepfake Detection Challenge. Deepfake algorithms are the same as the underlying technology that has given us realistic animation effects in movies and video games. Unfortunately, those same algorithms have been used by bad actors to […]
