    Data Scientist

    About the track

    Learn how to build, train, and deploy high-quality models at any scale, without having to worry about infrastructure. Focus on understanding the ML problem at hand, and on how to solve it using either existing algorithms or your own.

    Graph Neural Networks, the new way of doing Deep Learning

    Most data in the real world is non-Euclidean, meaning they are not in tabular form. By squashing the data in a table, we loose invaluable information, especially in terms of structural similarities and causal relatedness. Graph Neural networks embrace non-tabular data. In the last few years, both science and technology have advanced to finally allow massive parallel computations on Graphs and open up a new frontier on deep learning. By attending this talk, you will learn about graph neural networks and an example of how to easily train a graph neural network using Neptune ML.

    Speaker: Will Badr, Principal SA, AWS


    No code machine learning with Amazon SageMaker Canvas

    There is often a treasure trove of internal data available to data modelers, data engineers, data analysts in the enterprises. Citizen data experts in those companies are often not data scientists and they can only utilize their data for reactive analytical reporting. In this session, you learn how Amazon Canvas provides a visual no-code tool for predictive analytics.

    Speaker: Sofian Hamiti, Senior ML Solutions Architect, AWS


    ML the easy way Free of charge ML sandbox with Amazon SageMaker Studio Lab

    In a fast moving field such as machine learning (ML), continuous learning is of essential value. Whether data scientists and researchers are trying to learn new subjects or the novice trying to dip their toe in the field for the first time, they would need an environment that is free of charge, free of complexity to consume services, and free of stress and hassle of having to use credit cards to log in and making mistakes that result in payable bills. Amazon SageMaker Labs provide such open environments in which an experimenter can train models on GPU instances without having to pay or use a credit card as a guarantee. Additionally, the Amazon SageMaker Labs provides connectivity to other fundamental AWS services to provide experimenters with the ability to test their work against similar environments to those they use at work. This talk intends to provide an introductory hands on guide to using Amazon SageMaker Labs.

    Speaker: Boaz Ziniman, Developer Advocate, AWS


    Train your models faster using Amazon SageMaker training compiler

    As DL models grow in complexity, so does the time it can take to optimize and train them. In practice, optimizing machine learning (ML) code is difficult, time-consuming, and a rare skill set to acquire. Data scientists typically write their training code in a Python-based ML framework and rely on those frameworks to compile their models to efficient kernels. These translations are often very inefficient. In this session you will learn how to use SageMaker Training Compiler to automatically compile your Python training code and generate GPU kernels specifically for your model.

    Speaker: Gili Nachum, AI/ML Specialist Solutions Architect, AWS

  • I'm a Data Engineer

    About the track

    Learn how to turn raw data into clean and expressive ML datasets, without having to manage any infrastructure. Focus on exploring and enriching data coming from a variety of sources, in order to build high-quality models.

    Create High Quality Datasets using Amazon SageMaker GroundTruth Plus

    Most machine learning models in production today are based on supervised learning. High quality labeled data is in the core of supervised learning. The challenge is that despite massive growth in the volume of available data, high quality labeled data is still a rare commodity. Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth Plus enables you to easily create high-quality training datasets without having to build labeling applications and manage the labeling workforce on your own. By attending this talk, you will have a hands-on introduction to Automated data labeling using Amazon Ground Truth Plus.

    Speaker: Sohan Maheshwar, Senior Developer Advocate, AWS


    Large Scale data processing with EMR and Spark using Amazon Sagemaker Studio

    Large scale training requires data streaming and data processing at massive scale. Often Apache Spark is in the center of such data pipeline.

This talk provides a hands-on introduction in using Apache Spark from within SageMaker notebooks.

    Speaker: Jon Reade, Senior AI/ML Specialist Solutions Architect, AWS


    Prepare and make sense of your data rapidly using Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler

    The process of data preparation and feature engineering is perhaps the most tedius and the most time consuming part of machine learning. The challenge that begins with time and resources for the preparation phase extends to lengthy time to market and uncertainty about whether or not, data processing and feature engineering processes have led to an optimal input to the models. Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler supports optimization and automation of data processing and feature engineering using visual tools. Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler reduces the time it takes to aggregate and prepare data for machine learning (ML) from weeks to minutes. This talks provides data engineers with a practical guide to Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler.

    Speaker: Javier Ramirez, Developer Advocate, AWS


    A Low Code solution to prepare, analyze, and view your data

    Data preparation is a critical step to get data ready for analytics or machine learning. As data continues to grow in size and complexity, you need to expand the number of people preparing and unlocking value in your data. In this session, dive deep into AWS Glue DataBrew, a new visual data preparation tool that enables data analysts and data scientists to clean and normalize data without writing code. When attending this session, you will see a walkthrough of how AWS Glue DataBrew works, popular use cases, and best practices for data preparation across all your data stores.
