Machine Learning at the Edge with AWS Outposts and Amazon SageMaker

#artificialintelligence

As customers continue to come up with new use-cases for machine learning, data gravity is as important as ever. Where latency and network connectivity is not an issue, generating data in one location (such as a manufacturing facility) and sending it to the cloud for inference is acceptable for some use-cases. With other critical use-cases, such as fraud detection for financial transactions, product quality in manufacturing, or analyzing video surveillance in real-time, customers are faced with the challenges that come with having to move that data to the cloud first. One of the challenges customers are facing with performing inference in the cloud is the lack of real-time inference and/or security requirements preventing user data to be sent or stored in the cloud. Tens of thousands of customers use Amazon SageMaker to accelerate their Machine Learning (ML) journey by helping data scientists and developers to prepare, build, train, and deploy machine learning models quickly.


Spell vs AWS Sagemaker

#artificialintelligence

Spell was developed with data scientists and developers in mind-- it's faster, easier, and more versatile than AWS Sagemaker. Spell users are running machine learning projects within minutes. In comparison, AWS Sagemaker can take days to get started, even with the new SageMaker Studio, reviewers have found it complex to use. The simplicity and speed of Spell allows you to focus on business value instead of setup and management.


Review: AWS AI and Machine Learning stacks up

#artificialintelligence

Amazon Web Services claims to have the broadest and most complete set of machine learning capabilities. I honestly don't know how the company can claim those superlatives with a straight face: Yes, the AWS machine learning offerings are broad and fairly complete and rather impressive, but so are those of Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Amazon SageMaker Clarify is the new add-on to the Amazon SageMaker machine learning ecosystem for Responsible AI. SageMaker Clarify integrates with SageMaker at three points: in the new Data Wrangler to detect data biases at import time, such as imbalanced classes in the training set, in the Experiments tab of SageMaker Studio to detect biases in the model after training and to explain the importance of features, and in the SageMaker Model Monitor, to detect bias shifts in a deployed model over time. Historically, AWS has presented its services as cloud-only.

Amazon SageMaker price reductions: Up to 18% lower prices on ml.p3 and ml.p2 instances

#artificialintelligence

Effective October 1st, 2020, we're reducing the prices for ml.p3 and ml.p2 instances in Amazon SageMaker by up to 18% so you can maximize your machine learning (ML) budgets and innovate with deep learning using these accelerated compute instances. The new price reductions apply to ml.p3 and ml.p2 instances of all sizes for Amazon SageMaker Studio notebooks, on-demand notebooks, processing, training, real-time inference, and batch transform. Customers including Intuit, Thomson Reuters, Cerner, and Zalando are already reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO) by at least 50% using Amazon SageMaker. Amazon SageMaker removes the heavy lifting from each step of the ML process and makes it easy to apply advanced deep learning techniques at scale. Amazon SageMaker provides lower TCO because it's a fully managed service, so you don't need to build, manage, or maintain any infrastructure and tooling for your ML workloads.
