Distributed Mask RCNN training with Amazon SageMakerCV

Computer vision algorithms are at the core of many deep learning applications. Self-driving cars, security systems, healthcare, logistics, and image processing all incorporate various aspects of computer vision. But despite their ubiquity, training computer vision algorithms, like Mask or Cascade RCNN, is hard. These models employ complex architectures, train on large datasets, and require computer […]

Amazon Lookout for Vision now supports visual inspection of product defects at the edge

Discrete and continuous manufacturing lines generate a high volume of products at low latency, ranging from milliseconds to a few seconds. To identify defects at the same throughput of production, camera streams of images must be processed at low latency. Additionally, factories may have low network bandwidth or intermittent cloud connectivity. In such scenarios, you […]

Hierarchical Forecasting using Amazon SageMaker

Time series forecasting is a common problem in machine learning (ML) and statistics. Some common day-to-day use cases of time series forecasting involve predicting product sales, item demand, component supply, service tickets, and all as a function of time. More often than not, time series data follows a hierarchical aggregation structure. For example, in retail, […]

The Formula 1 (F1) live steaming service, F1 TV, has live automated closed captions in three different languages: English, Spanish, and French. For the 2021 season, FORMULA 1 has achieved another technological breakthrough, building a fully automated workflow to create closed captions in three languages and broadcasting to 85 territories using Amazon Transcribe. Amazon Transcribe […]

AWS Deep Learning AMIs: New framework-specific DLAMIs for production complement the original multi-framework DLAMIs

Since its launch in November 2017, the AWS Deep Learning Amazon Machine Image (DLAMI) has been the preferred method for running deep learning frameworks on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). For deep learning practitioners and learners who want to accelerate deep learning in the cloud, the DLAMI comes pre-installed with AWS-optimized deep learning (DL) frameworks […]

Clinical text mining using the Amazon Comprehend Medical new SNOMED CT API

Mining medical concepts from written clinical text, such as patient encounters, plays an important role in clinical analytics and decision-making applications, such as population analytics for providers, pre-authorization for payers, and adverse-event detection for pharma companies. Medical concepts contain medical conditions, medications, procedures, and other clinical events. Extracting medical concepts is a complicated process due […]

Plan the locations of green car charging stations with an Amazon SageMaker built-in algorithm

While the fuel economy of new gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles improves every year, green vehicles are considered even more environmentally friendly because they’re powered by alternative fuel or electricity. Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery only electric vehicles (BEVs), fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), hydrogen cars, and solar cars are all considered types of green vehicles. […]

AWS computer vision and Amazon Rekognition: AWS recognized as an IDC MarketScape Leader in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), up to 38% price cut, and major new features

Computer vision, the automatic recognition and description of documents, images, and videos, has far-reaching applications, from identifying defects in high-speed assembly lines, to intelligently automating document processing workflows, and identifying products and people in social media. AWS computer vision services, including Amazon Lookout for Vision, AWS Panorama, Amazon Rekognition, and Amazon Textract, help developers automate […]
