Estimating 3D pose for athlete tracking using 2D videos and Amazon SageMaker Studio

In preparation for the upcoming Olympic Games, Intel®, an American multinational corporation and one of the world’s largest technology companies, developed a concept around 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT). 3DAT is a machine learning (ML) solution to create real-time digital models of athletes in competition in order to increase fan engagement during broadcasts. Intel was looking […]

Implement checkpointing with TensorFlow for Amazon SageMaker Managed Spot Training

Customers often ask us how can they lower their costs when conducting deep learning training on AWS. Training deep learning models with libraries such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and Apache MXNet usually requires access to GPU instances, which are AWS instances types that provide access to NVIDIA GPUs with thousands of compute cores. GPU instance types […]

AWS and NVIDIA to bring Arm-based Graviton2 instances with GPUs to the cloud

AWS continues to innovate on behalf of our customers. We’re working with NVIDIA to bring an Arm processor-based, NVIDIA GPU accelerated Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance to the cloud in the second half of 2021. This instance will feature the Arm-based AWS Graviton2 processor, which was built from the ground up by AWS […]

Detect abnormal equipment behavior and review predictions using Amazon Lookout for Equipment and Amazon A2I

Companies that operate and maintain a broad range of industrial machinery such as generators, compressors, and turbines are constantly working to improve operational efficiency and avoid unplanned downtime due to component failure. They invest heavily in physical sensors (tags), data connectivity, data storage, and data visualization to monitor the condition of their equipment and get […]

Acoustic anomaly detection using Amazon Lookout for Equipment

As the modern factory becomes more connected, manufacturers are increasingly using a range of inputs (such as process data, audio, and visual) to increase their operational efficiency. Companies use this information to monitor equipment performance and anticipate failures using predictive maintenance techniques powered by machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). Although traditional sensors built […]
