AI Tech Talk: An Overview of AI on the AWS Platform

New on the AWS #AI Blog,

  • AWS offers a family of intelligent services that provide cloud-native machine learning and deep learning technologies to address your different use cases and needs.
  • For developers looking to add managed AI services to their applications, AWS brings natural language understanding (NLU) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) with Amazon Lex, visual search and image recognition with Amazon Rekognition, text-to-speech (TTS) with Amazon Polly, and developer-focused machine learning with Amazon Machine Learning.
  • For more in-depth deep learning applications, the AWS Deep Learning AMI lets you run deep learning in the cloud, at any scale.
  • Launch instances of the AMI, pre-installed with open source deep learning frameworks (Apache MXNet, TensorFlow, Caffe, Theano, Torch and Keras), to train sophisticated, custom AI models, experiment with new algorithms, and learn new deep learning skills and techniques; all backed by auto-scaling clusters of GPU-based instances.
  • Whether you’re just getting started with AI or you’re a deep learning expert, this session will provide a meaningful overview of the managed AI services, the AI Platform offerings, and the AI Frameworks you can run on the AWS Cloud.
