Germany’s International University of Applied Sciences automates creation of educational videos using generative AI, serverless on AWS

The International University of Applied Sciences (IU) maintains 90 percent of its course content online. Through its online programs, IU aims to give people worldwide access to highly individualized education, enabling them to further enrich their lives. The large majority of IU’s infrastructure runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Read this post to learn why IU worked directly with AWS experts through the Experience-Based Acceleration (EBA) program to expand their automated video generation pipelines to be more scalable, modular, and robust.

Optimizing the US mortgage market with AWS

Common Securitization Solutions (CSS), a joint Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae venture launched in 2013, supports a cornerstone of the American economy: home ownership. CSS built and now operates the largest and most advanced mortgage securitization platform in the US, supporting Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae’s 70 percent market share of the industry with flexibility, scalability, and security at its core. Read this blog post to learn how CSS uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power their solutions in the cloud.

How transit agencies can use AWS to improve safety and passenger experience

Fleet managers can use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to ingest and analyze fleet driver data. In this post, we share how a large public transit agency in the United States worked with AWS to create a proof-of-concept (POC) to analyze operator behavior and improve its visibility of sudden acceleration-based events.

Singapore’s IHiS scales vaccine operations with AWS to meet evolving on-the-ground requirements

To support Singapore’s national vaccination program, the Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS) needed the capability to scale its systems to sustain significantly higher loads at very short notice. In addition, its teams needed to be able to develop and implement new features at speed to address evolving vaccination policies and changing, on-the-ground requirements. The agency turned to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Australian Bureau of Statistics runs 2021 Census on the AWS Cloud

Earlier this year, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) ran the Australian Census, the agency’s most significant workload, on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Census is the most comprehensive snapshot of the country, and includes around 10 million households and over 25 million people. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing lockdowns across the country, ABS needed a digital option for the Census that was accessible and reliable for millions of people. They turned to the cloud.

Embracing the cloud for climate research

Scientists at NC State University’s North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies (NCICS) work with large datasets and complex computational analysis. Traditionally, they did their work using on-premises computational resources. As different projects were stretching the limits of those systems, NCICS decided to explore cloud computing. As part of the Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative, we invited Jessica Mathews, Jared Rennie, and Tom Maycock to share what they learned from using AWS for climate research. As they considered exploring the cloud to support their work, the idea of leaving the comfort of the local environment was a bit scary. And they had questions: How much will it cost? What does it take to deploy processing to the cloud? Will it be faster? Will the results match what they were getting with their own systems? Here is their story and what they learned.

The Boss: A Petascale Database for Large-Scale Neuroscience Powered by Serverless Technologies

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS) program seeks to revolutionize machine learning by better understanding the representations, transformations, and learning rules employed by the brain. We spoke with Dean Kleissas, Research Engineer working on the IARPA MICrONS Project at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), and […]
