At AWS, we know that building a dream is best achieved by having support from people like you who want to get where you’re going as much as you do. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re recognizing the achievements and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have inspired others to achieve success. In Part 2, we hear from Augie Del Rio, co-founder and CEO of Gallus Insights, a company that develops advanced analytics services to support timely, informed decision making.
When Gil Elbaz and Ofir Zuk founded Datagen in 2018, it was with the purpose of re-inventing the broken process of how clients obtain data for computer vision network training. More specifically, they wanted to bring data simulation to every computer vision team in a continuous and scalable way.

As the real-world changes, machine learning models degrade in their ability to accurately represent it, resulting in model performance degradation. That’s why it’s important for data scientists and machine learning engineers to support models with tools that provide ML monitoring and observability, thereby preventing that performance degradation. In this post, we dive into the WhyLabs AI Observatory, a data and ML monitoring and observability platform, and show how it complements Amazon SageMaker.
Back in 2005, Roustem Karimov and Dave Teare were web consultants helping others build e-commerce sites when they started a side project to help keep track of all the different passwords needed for work.
