AWS introduced new services that use AI to allow more developers to apply machine learning to create better end user experiences, including new machine learning-powered enterprise search, code reviews and profiling, fraud detection, medical transcription, and human review of AI predictions. Machine learning continues to grow at a rapid clip, and today there are tens of thousands of customers doing machine learning on AWS (twice as many as the next largest cloud provider), including many customers that opt to use AWS's fully managed AI Services like Alfresco, Bayer Crop Science, Cerner, CJ Cox Automotive, C-SPAN, Deloitte, Domino's, Emirates NBD, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, FICO, FINRA, Gallup, Kelley Blue Book, Kia, Mainichi Newspapers Co, NASA, PricewaterhouseCoopers, White House Historical Association, and Zola. In the past year, AWS has introduced several new fully managed AI Services like Amazon Personalize and Amazon Forecast that allow customers to benefit from the same personalization and forecasting machine learning technology used by Amazon's consumer business to power its award-winning customer experiences. AWS customers are interested in learning from Amazon's vast experience using machine learning at scale to improve operations and deliver better customer experiences, without needing to train, tune, and deploy their own custom machine learning models. Today, AWS is announcing five new AI services that build upon Amazon's rich experience with machine learning, and allow organizations of all sizes across all industries to adopt machine learning in their enterprises – with no machine learning experience required. Despite many attempts over many years, internal search remains a vexing problem for today's enterprises, and most employees still frequently struggle to find the information they need. Organizations have vast amounts of unstructured text data, much of it incredibly useful if it can be discovered, stored in many formats and spread across different data sources (e.g.
Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service for developers and data scientists to quickly build, train, deploy, and manage their own machine learning models. AWS also introduced AWS DeepLens, a deep learning-enabled wireless video camera that can run real-time computer vision models to give developers hands-on experience with machine learning. And, AWS announced four new application services that allow developers to build applications that emulate human-like cognition: Amazon Transcribe for converting speech to text; Amazon Translate for translating text between languages; Amazon Comprehend for understanding natural language; and, Amazon Rekognition Video, a new computer vision service for analyzing videos in batches and in real-time.
The AWS re:Invent conference announced numerous tools and services for developers in 2019. This year, the developers at AWS paid special attention to machine learning development. In this article, we list down the top announcements on machine learning services at AWS re:Invent 2019. Amazon Augmented AI or A2I provides built-in human review workflows for common machine learning use cases, such as content moderation and text extraction from documents, which allows predictions from Amazon Rekognition and Amazon Textract to be reviewed easily. This feature makes it easy for building and managing human reviews for machine learning applications.
With less than 40 days to re:Invent 2019, the excitement is building up and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon! Continuing our journey on artificial intelligence and machine learning, we are bringing a lot of technical content this year, with over 200 breakout sessions, deep-dive chalk talks, hands-on exercises with workshops featuring Amazon SageMaker, AWS DeepRacer, and deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and more. You'll hear from many customers including Vanguard, BBC, Autodesk, British Airways, Fannie Mae, Thermo Fisher, Intuit, and many more. We are also hosting the Machine Learning Summit again this year, where you will hear from researchers and entrepreneurs about the latest breakthroughs today and the future possibilities tomorrow. To get you started on planning, here are a few highlights for the AI and ML sessions from the re:Invent 2019 session catalog.
