“In the Research Spotlight”: A New Blog Post Series

In addition to the continued contributions to the AI community through Apache MXNet and the Amazon AI services of Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, and Amazon Rekognition, AWS also has an active team of AI researchers. These researchers have rich and interesting backgrounds in machine learning and deep learning, from academia, startups, and enterprises, all with […]

Fast CNN Tuning with AWS GPU Instances and SigOpt

Update: SigOpt was acquired by Intel in October of 2020 By Steven Tartakovsky, Michael McCourt, and Scott Clark of SigOpt Compared with traditional machine learning models, neural networks are computationally more complex and introduce many additional parameters. This often prevents machine learning engineers and data scientists from getting the best performance from their models. In […]

Amazon and Facebook Collaborate to Optimize Caffe2 for the AWS Cloud

From Apache MXNet to Torch, there is no shortage of frameworks for deep learners to leverage. The various offerings each excel at different aspects of the deep learning pipeline and each meets different developer needs. The research-centric community tends to gravitate toward frameworks such as Theano, Torch and most recently PyTorch, while many in the […]

Running BigDL, Deep Learning for Apache Spark, on AWS

In recent years, deep learning has significantly improved several AI applications, such as recommendation engines, voice and speech recognition, and image and video recognition. Many customers process the massive amounts of data that feed these deep neural networks in Apache Spark, only to later feed it into a separate infrastructure to train models using popular […]

Deep Learning AMI for Ubuntu v1.3_Apr2017 Now Supports Caffe2

We are excited to announce that the AWS Deep Learning AMI for Ubuntu now supports the newly launched Caffe2 project led by Facebook. AWS is the best and most open place for developers to run deep learning, and the addition of Caffe2 adds yet another choice. To learn more about Caffe2, check out the the […]

Deploy Deep Learning Models on Amazon ECS

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the computer science field dedicated to solving cognitive problems commonly associated with human intelligence, such as learning, problem solving, and pattern recognition. Machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) are computer science fields derived from the AI discipline. Most ML and DL systems have two distinct parts: training (or learning) and […]

Amazon at WMT: Improving Machine Translation with User Feedback

Machine translation is one of the most exciting and important applications of machine learning.  It’s a widely researched topic, both in the academic community and within major technology companies, such as Amazon.  At Amazon, we use machine translation to do things like document the same products in multiple languages.  This helps us to offer additional […]
