Parallelizing across multiple CPU/GPUs to speed up deep learning inference at the edge

AWS customers often choose to run machine learning (ML) inferences at the edge to minimize latency. In many of these situations, ML predictions must be run on a large number of inputs independently.  For example, running an object detection model on each frame of a video. In these cases, parallelizing ML inferences across all available CPU/GPUs […]

Segmenting brain tissue using Apache MXNet with Amazon SageMaker and AWS Greengrass ML Inference – Part 2

In Part 1 of this blog post, we demonstrated how to train and deploy neural networks to automatically segment brain tissue from an MRI scan in a simple, streamlined way using Amazon SageMaker. We used Apache MXNet to train a convolutional neural network (CNN) on Amazon SageMaker using the Bring Your Own Script paradigm. We […]

Segmenting brain tissue using Apache MXNet with Amazon SageMaker and AWS Greengrass ML Inference – Part 1

Annotation and segmentation of medical images is a laborious endeavor that can be automated in part via deep learning (DL) techniques. These approaches have achieved state-of-the-art results in generic segmentation tasks, the goal of which is to classify images at the pixel level. In Part 1 of this blog post, we demonstrate how to train […]
