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 […]

Authenticate users with one-time passwords in Amazon Lex chatbots

Today, many companies use one-time passwords (OTP) to authenticate users. An application asks you for a password to proceed. This password is sent to you via text message to a registered phone number. You enter the password to authenticate. It is an easy and secure approach to verifying user identity. In this blog post, we’ll […]

Kinect Energy uses Amazon SageMaker to Forecast energy prices with Machine Learning

The Amazon ML Solutions Lab worked with Kinect Energy recently to build a pipeline to predict future energy prices based on machine learning (ML). We created an automated data ingestion and inference pipeline using Amazon SageMaker and AWS Step Functions to automate and schedule energy price prediction. The process makes special use of the Amazon […]

Managing Amazon Lex session state using APIs on the client

Anyone who has tried building a bot to support interactions knows that managing the conversation flow can be tricky. Real users (people who obviously haven’t rehearsed your script) can digress in the middle of a conversation. They could ask a question related to the current topic or take the conversation in an entirely new direction. […]

Adding a data labeling workflow for named entity recognition with Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth

Launched at AWS re:Invent 2018, Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth enables you to efficiently and accurately label the datasets required to train machine learning (ML) systems. Ground Truth provides built-in labeling workflows that take human labelers step-by-step through tasks and provide tools to help them produce good results. Built-in workflows are currently available for object detection, […]

Use Amazon Lex as a conversational interface with Twilio Media Streams

Businesses use the Twilio platform to build new ways to communicate with their customers: whether it’s fully automating a restaurant’s food orders with a conversational Interactive Voice Response (IVR) or building a next generation advanced contact center. With the launch of Media Streams, Twilio is opening up their Voice platform by providing businesses access to […]

Harvesting success using Amazon SageMaker to power Bayer’s digital farming unit

By the year 2050, our planet will need to feed ten billion people. We can’t expand the earth to create more agricultural land, so the solution to growing more food is to make agriculture more productive and less resource-dependent. In other words, there is no room for crop losses or resource waste. Bayer is using […]

Git integration now available for the Amazon SageMaker Python SDK

Git integration is now available in the Amazon SageMaker Python SDK. You no longer have to download scripts from a Git repository for training jobs and hosting models. With this new feature, you can use training scripts stored in Git repos directly when training a model in the Python SDK. You can also use hosting […]
