How C2i Genomics builds on AWS to transform cancer care

Healthcare and life sciences (HCLS) startups recognize that technology is an impactful vehicle for advancing human health at speed and scale. More importantly, HCLS startups are working to do something about it. C2i Genomics, founded in 2019, is one such startup: C2i Genomics is building a whole genome intelligence platform to improve cancer monitoring. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions, C2i Genomics’ platform analyzes sequenced genome data to detect the tumor burden of cancer patients via a simple blood test.

How Amazon SageMaker helps Widebot provide Arabic sentiment analysis

Startups are familiar with the importance of creating great customer experiences. Sentiment analysis is one tool that helps with this. It categorizes data as positive, negative, or neutral based on machine learning techniques such as text analysis and natural language processing (NLP). Companies use sentiment analysis to measure the satisfaction of clients for a target product or service. In this blog post, we explain how Widebot uses Amazon Sagemaker to successfully implement a sentiment classifier for Modern Standard Arabic and Egyptian dialect Arabic.

Quick Cost Optimization Strategies for Early Stage Startups

Cost optimization is a top of mind consideration for any startup and can be achieved with a wide variety of techniques, but how you tackle it depends on the stage of your business’s growth. Startups are laser-focused on product development, which can mean choosing between time spent building extra functionality to manage costs, like reorganizing account structures or building cost analytics pipelines, and prioritizing low-effort-to-high-impact architectural changes to keep your momentum up. In this post, we’ll share three easy-to-implement cost optimization strategies to help you quickly understand and optimize your spend, then get back to building features that will drive value for your customers.

Cost Effective Data Science for Startups: Memory Mapped Techniques with Amazon SageMaker

Being able to choose really powerful instances to reduce your training time on demand, paying only for the seconds you use them, and at the same time having the choice of your notebook instances in your favorite tooling opens large opportunities for cost savings and productiveness across startups. AWS Startup Solutions Architect Manager Daniel Bernao walks us through how to do it.
