Leveraging skills and generative AI to create technology innovation: Insights from AWS executive John Davies
In the third episode of the AWS Behind the Cloud series, John Davies, director of Latin America, Canada, and the Caribbean (LCC) sales for Amazon Web Services (AWS) worldwide public sector (WWPS), speaks on the importance of building skills to deliver results; scaling teams and programs geographically to serve the greater good; and leveraging generative AI responsibly to create more meaningful impact for business, government, and society.
Islands, like other communities, are working to create effective and sustainable transport linkages. But they are subject to unique challenges, as they are often highly dependent on external transport linkages. Technologies such as digital twins, artificial intelligence (AI), edge and cloud computing, and open data can help islands ameliorate these challenges.
The advent of cloud technology, coupled with advances in fields like epidemiology, genomics, and data analytics, has led to transformational change in how we use data in health. These developments enable a data-driven approach in individual care, public health, and health-related research.
Ports and marinas are important catalysts for economic growth, tourism, and employment. Increasingly, they are also hubs for renewable energy and the blue economy. Islands can serve as test beds for transforming ports and marinas. Learn how some European islands are using cloud technology to create innovative new solutions to manage their ports and marinas.
In the second episode of the AWS Behind the Cloud series, Dominic Delmolino, vice president of field technology and engineering for AWS worldwide public sector (WWPS) speaks on the big opportunities for generative AI, the importance of customer obsession in building long-term solutions for the public sector, and why it’s important, above all else, to make sure technology is used for good.
States are reevaluating the resiliency, security, and adaptability of their unemployment insurance (UI) systems. The AWS whitepaper, Why Unemployment Insurance Systems Belong in the Cloud, explores lessons learned from the pandemic – and provides opportunities for a path forward. While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to modernization, we propose five tenets to anchor a vision of modern UI benefits systems and explore the different technical approaches to realize that vision.
Cloud technology provides an opportunity to think differently about the electronic health record (EHR) to provide continuous, superior patient care. A patient’s health is not static, and a health record system is not static. Healthcare leaders should consider shifting the underlying words of EHR from “electronic” to “elastic,” embracing a record that is always in motion. AWS can help support this elasticity.
