Word embeddings represent each unique word in the entire collection of text documents as a vector of numbers. Words that are similar will have similar vectors – that is, they will be close in the low-dimensional space of the embeddings – while words that are less similar will be further apart. This algorithm is used in a variety of Natural Language Understanding (NLU) tasks, such as semantic similarity, sentiment analysis, machine translation, and question-answering. Word2Vec has also recently been used successfully in tasks like recommendation and segmentation, where similar embeddings may denote that, by example, two movies tend to be watched by similar users at similar times. Amazon SageMaker’s BlazingText implementation has been engineered with speed and scale in mind to produce embeddings extremely fast using either GPU or CPU hardware.<br /> </p>Thu, 18 Jan 2018 21:03:25 +0000general:products/amazon-sagemakeraws@amazon.com Publish Log Files from Amazon RDS for MySQL and MariaDB to Amazon CloudWatch Logs<p>You can now publish logs from your RDS for MySQL and MariaDB databases to CloudWatch Logs. Supported logs include general log, slow query log, audit log, and error log. Publishing these logs to CloudWatch Logs allows you to maintain continuous visibility into database activity, query performance, and errors in your RDS for MySQL and MariaDB databases. For example, you can set up CloudWatch Alarms to notify you on frequent restarts which are recorded in the error log. Similarly, alarms for events recorded in general or audit logs can be created to alert on unwanted changes made to your databases. You may also create alarms to monitor the slow query log and enable timely detection of long-running queries.&nbsp;</p>Thu, 18 Jan 2018 00:47:09 +0000general:products/amazon-rds,general:products/amazon-cloudwatchaws@amazon.com EC2 M5 Instances Are Now Available in US West (N.
