AWS Neuron is a software development kit (SDK) for running machine learning inference using AWS Inferentia chips. It consists of a compiler, run-time, and profiling tools that enable developers to run high-performance and low latency inference using AWS Inferentia-based Amazon EC2 Inf1 instances. The fastest and easiest way to get started with Inf1 instances is Amazon SageMaker, a fully managed service that enables data scientists and developers to build, train, and deploy machine learning models.
Developers who prefer to manage their own machine learning workflows will find AWS Neuron easy to integrate into their existing and future workflows as it is natively integrated with popular frameworks including TensorFlow, PyTorch, and MXNet. Neuron is pre-installed in AWS Deep Learning AMIs and can also be installed in your custom environment without a framework. Additionally, Neuron will soon be available pre-installed in AWS Deep Learning Containers.
