Maximize training performance with Gluon data loader workers

With recent advances in CPU and GPU technology, training complex and deep neural network models in a few hours is within reach for many state of-the-art deep models. However, when you use a system with such high processing throughput potential, the required data for the processing pipeline must be ready before each iteration.

Use the built-in Amazon SageMaker Random Cut Forest algorithm for anomaly detection

Today, we are launching support for Random Cut Forest (RCF) as the latest built-in algorithm for Amazon SageMaker. RCF is an unsupervised learning algorithm for detecting anomalous data points or outliers within a dataset. This blog post introduces the anomaly detection problem, describes the Amazon SageMaker RCF algorithm, and demonstrates the use of the Amazon […]

Easily perform facial analysis on live feeds by creating a serverless video analytics environment using Amazon Rekognition Video and Amazon Kinesis Video Streams

In this blog post, we’ll use your webcam on your laptop to send a live feed to an Amazon Kinesis Video Stream. From there, a processor within Amazon Rekognition Video analyzes the feed and compares it to a collection we create. The output matches will get sent to us via an email through an integration with AWS Lambda and Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS).
