How Artificial Intelligence is Building The Future of eCommerce


While the whole planet was frozen by the coronavirus pandemic, offline stores found they couldn't compete with even the smallest online stores when people's lifestyles were limited by their homes or neighborhoods. But those who have just started online sales this year will quickly find out what to do to sell efficiently on the internet. This is why the overall competition will rise. Wondering how you can gain a foothold at this moment? Take a look at modern technologies – artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and big data analysis.

Get over 50 hours of training in machine learning for under £30


TL;DR: The Machine Learning Master Class bundle is on sale for £29.85 as of August 4, saving you 91% on list price. Thanks to developing artificial intelligence technologies, computer are smarter than ever before. Along with those technologies has come a relatively new category of computer science called machine learning, or ML. Similar to statistics, ML involves computer systems that utilise algorithms to automatically learn about data, recognise patterns, and make decisions, all without outside intervention or explicit directions from human beings. In the real world, you can find it being used in smart assistants like Siri and the Amazon Echo, in online fraud detection services, in the facial recognition feature that identifies photos of you on Facebook, and more recently, in Tesla's self-driving car.

This month in AWS Machine Learning: July 2020 edition


Every day there is something new going on in the world of AWS Machine Learning--from launches to new use cases like posture detection to interactive trainings like the AWS Power Hour: Machine Learning on Twitch. Check back at the end of each month for the latest roundup. As models become more sophisticated, AWS customers are increasingly applying machine learning (ML) prediction to video content, whether that's in media and entertainment, autonomous driving, or more. Want more news about developments in ML? Check out the following stories: Also, if you missed it, see the Amazon Augmented AI (Amazon A2I) Tech Talk to learn how you can implement human reviews to review your ML predictions from Amazon Textract, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Comprehend, Amazon SageMaker, and other AWS AI/ ML services. See you next month for more on AWS ML! Laura Jones is a product marketing lead for AWS AI/ML where she focuses on sharing the stories of AWS's customers and educating organizations on the impact of machine learning.

Enhancing recommendation filters by filtering on item metadata with Amazon Personalize


We're pleased to announce enhancements to recommendation filters in Amazon Personalize, which provide you greater control on recommendations your users receive by allowing you to exclude or include items to recommend based on criteria that you define. For example, when recommending products for your e-retail store, you can exclude unavailable items from recommendations. If you're recommending videos to users, you can choose to only recommend premium content if the user is in a particular subscription tier. You typically address this by writing custom code to implement their business rules, but you can now save time and streamline your architectures by using recommendation filters in Amazon Personalize. Based on over 20 years of personalization experience, Amazon Personalize enables you to improve customer engagement by powering personalized product and content recommendations and targeted marketing promotions.

Code-free machine learning: AutoML with AutoGluon, Amazon SageMaker, and AWS Lambda


One of AWS's goals is to put machine learning (ML) in the hands of every developer. With the open-source AutoML library AutoGluon, deployed using Amazon SageMaker and AWS Lambda, we can take this a step further, putting ML in the hands of anyone who wants to make predictions based on data--no prior programming or data science expertise required. AutoGluon automates ML for real-world applications involving image, text, and tabular datasets. AutoGluon trains multiple ML models to predict a particular feature value (the target value) based on the values of other features for a given observation. During training, the models learn by comparing their predicted target values to the actual target values available in the training data, using appropriate algorithms to improve their predictions accordingly.

Amazon Fraud Detector To Identify Potentially Fraudulent Online Activities


Web services platform GoDaddy, payments products maker Truevo, and software maker ActiveCampaign are already among the customers and partners using Amazon Fraud Detector. Amazon Fraud Detector, a fully managed service, automatically identifies potentially fraudulent activity in milliseconds with no machine learning expertise required. AWS uses the same technology used by Amazon says businesses just need a few clicks in the Amazon Fraud Detector console to initiate a fraud investigation when the machine learning model predicts potentially fraudulent activity. While using Amazon Fraud Detector, customers use their historical data of both fraudulent and legitimate transactions to build, train, and deploy machine learning models that provide real-time, low-latency fraud risk predictions.

What if I told a story here, how would that story start?" Thus, the summarization prompt: "My second grader asked me what this passage means: …" When a given prompt isn't working and GPT-3 keeps pivoting into other modes of completion, that may mean that one hasn't constrained it enough by imitating a correct output, and one needs to go further; writing the first few words or sentence of the target output may be necessary.
