Build a robust text-based toxicity predictor

With the growth and popularity of online social platforms, people can stay more connected than ever through tools like instant messaging. However, this raises an additional concern about toxic speech, as well as cyber bullying, verbal harassment, or humiliation. Content moderation is crucial for promoting healthy online discussions and creating healthy online environments. To detect […]

An NHL faceoff shot from up top

Face-off Probability, part of NHL Edge IQ: Predicting face-off winners in real time during televised games

Face-off Probability is the National Hockey League’s (NHL) first advanced statistic using machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence. It uses real-time Player and Puck Tracking (PPT) data to show viewers which player is likely to win a face-off before the puck is dropped, and provides broadcasters and viewers the opportunity to dive deeper into the […]

Create high-quality data for ML models with Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth

Machine learning (ML) has improved business across industries in recent years—from the recommendation system on your Prime Video account, to document summarization and efficient search with Alexa’s voice assistance. However, the question remains of how to incorporate this technology into your business. Unlike traditional rule-based methods, ML automatically infers patterns from data so as to […]

Localize content into multiple languages using AWS machine learning services

Over the last few years, online education platforms have seen an increase in adoption of and an uptick in demand for video-based learnings because it offers an effective medium to engage learners. To expand to international markets and address a culturally and linguistically diverse population, businesses are also looking at diversifying their learning offerings by […]

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. […]

Build a custom Q&A dataset using Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth to train a Hugging Face Q&A NLU model

In recent years, natural language understanding (NLU) has increasingly found business value, fueled by model improvements as well as the scalability and cost-efficiency of cloud-based infrastructure. Specifically, the Transformer deep learning architecture, often implemented in the form of BERT models, has been highly successful, but training, fine-tuning, and optimizing these models has proven to be […]

Build a custom entity recognizer for PDF documents using Amazon Comprehend

In many industries, it’s critical to extract custom entities from documents in a timely manner. This can be challenging. Insurance claims, for example, often contain dozens of important attributes (such as dates, names, locations, and reports) sprinkled across lengthy and dense documents. Manually scanning and extracting such information can be error-prone and time-consuming. Rule-based software […]
