Optimizing operations for ground-based, extremely large telescopes with AWS
Ground-based, extremely large telescopes (ELTs), such as the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), will play a crucial role in modern astronomy by providing observations of the universe with remarkable clarity and detail. However, managing the vast amount of data generated by these instruments and supporting optimal performance can be a challenging task. AWS provides a suite of cloud-based solutions that can help address these challenges and streamline ELT operations. Learn how various AWS services can be used to optimize data storage, management, and processing, as well as advanced monitoring and remote continuity techniques, leading to improved overall performance and efficiency for ELTs.
Supporting health equity with data insights and visualizations using AWS
In this guest post, Ajay K. Gupta, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of HSR.health, explains how healthcare technology (HealthTech) nonprofit HSR.health uses geospatial artificial intelligence and AWS to develop solutions that support improvements in healthcare and health equity around the world.
Automating returned mail to keep members enrolled during Medicaid unwinding
As the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) begins to wind down, starting April 1, 2023, state Medicaid agencies (SMAs) will have one year to “unwind” temporary COVID-era changes and return to pre-pandemic ways of working. For nearly a year, AWS has supported SMAs with in-house Medicaid expertise to identify unwinding issues and develop solutions to address them. The top four concerns that SMAs have shared for unwinding are constituent outreach and engagement, staffing shortages, returned mail, and reporting capabilities. In this blog post, explore how AWS can help with automating returned mail to support members in keeping their coverage.
Using AI for intelligent document processing to support benefit applications and more
Each year, US federal, state, and local government agencies spend a significant part of their budgets on various social and safety net programs. Tens of millions of residents apply for these benefits every year. In these applications, documents—in various sources, formats, and layouts—are the primary tools for application assessment. Artificial intelligence (AI) technology can accelerate and simplify the application review process, improving both the case worker and applicant experience. Learn how public sector agencies can leverage AI offerings from AWS, like Amazon Textract and Amazon Comprehend, to process multiple documents in benefit application use cases in an intelligent document processing (IDP) workflow.
4 ways AWS Partners are using AI/ML to drive public sector transformation
As investments and adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) continue to rise, there is tremendous potential for improved citizen experiences in the public sector. As government, education, and nonprofit organizations seek solutions for their challenges, AWS Partners are at the forefront of helping to solve those problems using AI and ML. Discover four AWS Partners using AI/ML to better society and improve lives.
Automatically extracting email attachment data to reduce costs and save time for local public health departments
Local public health departments must notify public health agencies, like state health departments or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of reportable conditions. These departments receive various types of reports of healthcare conditions through email, in addition to more traditional methods such as mail, fax, or phone calls. Local health departments can dramatically reduce the time and costs associated with manually processing email attachments and improve processing efficiency using automation. In this blog post, learn how to create an automated email attachment ingestion, storage, and processing solution powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services from AWS.
Helping prevent sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes with AI
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the number one cause of death for student athletes and the leading cause of death on school campuses. The nonprofit Who We Play For (WWPF) advocates for SCA prevention through advocacy, automated external defibrillator (AED) placement, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training, and heart screenings, which include low-cost electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings from physicians that are experts in pediatric ECG interpretation. To scale their efforts, WWPF collaborated with AWS to build a ML solution to help extend the chance to get screened for SCA to every young person, potentially saving many lives each year.
4 key predictions to watch for public sector partners in 2023
Partners are playing a key role in the continued digital transformation of public sector organizations. Public sector customers are asking for ways to increase the speed, accessibility, security, and resiliency of their systems and data. As we look forward, here’s what I’m expecting to see for partners supporting public sector customers this year.
5 public sector technology predictions for 2023
As we begin the new year, the AWS worldwide public sector (WWPS) team wanted to share a few of our predictions for public sector technology in 2023. We hope these predictions will help guide and inspire you as you continue your digital transformation journey this year.
AWS selected for U.S. Department of Defense Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability contract
In 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced the creation of the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC) contract—a multi-vendor acquisition vehicle designed to make cloud services and capabilities available at all classiﬁcation levels and across all security domains, from the enterprise to the tactical edge. JWCC will enable the DoD to fully leverage the capabilities of the cloud to meet current and future mission initiatives. Further, JWCC is key to enabling critical warfighter capabilities, such as the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), and the DoD Artificial Intelligence and Data Acceleration Initiative (ADA). As the DoD continues to modernize the way it supports the warfighter and defends our national security, AWS is committed to supporting its critical mission.
