I have a background in IT, marketing, and business development with over ten years of experience in startups and multinational companies. I live by the philosophy that "entrepreneurship isn't about starting your own company or making money, it's all about solving problems." I m the co-founder of Expert Project from 2010 to 2019, where he oversaw day-to-day operations as well as international expansion. I also founded People Marketing (2012 to 2014) which was a startup focused on creating scalable customer acquisition campaigns for small businesses. When I m not working on my own projects, I can be found reading books about new cultures and innovation or traveling to places for inspiration.

Secure Amazon S3 access for isolated Amazon SageMaker notebook instances


In this post, we will demonstrate how to securely launch notebook instances in a private subnet of an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), with internet access disabled, and to securely connect to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) using VPC endpoints. This post is for network and security architects that support decentralized data science teams on AWS. SageMaker notebook instances can be deployed in a private subnet and we recommend deploying them without internet access. Securing your notebook instances within a private subnet helps prevent unauthorized internet access to your notebook instances, which may contain sensitive information. The examples in this post will use Notebook instance Lifecycle Configurations (LCCs) to connect to an S3 VPC endpoint and download idle-usage detection and termination scripts onto the notebook instance.

'Upload' Season 2 review: The *other* afterlife comedy comes into its own


When the first season of Upload premiered on Amazon Prime in 2020, creator Greg Daniels and some of his cast members told Mashable he had an uncanny gift for accidental prediction. Elements of the show, set in a 2033 where humans' digital selves can be uploaded to a virtual reality afterlife, kept popping up in real life during filming -- like a joke about hospitals having "vape lung" units that was written before the phenomenon made real-life headlines. The idea of being able to whisk ourselves into a digital world where our every whim can be coded or gestured into being, and our vulnerable human bodies left behind in meatspace, has existed since at least the 1930s. Nearly a century later, we're still years off the staggering computing power that would allow fully immersive VR, let alone transferring fully functioning human consciousness into a server. But between the release of the first season of Upload and the second, which arrives on Amazon Prime today, the world's most powerful tech company announced -- to much derision -- a pivot to focus on the future of just such a product.

Use a web browser plugin to quickly translate text with Amazon Translate


Web browsers can be a single pane of glass for organizations to interact with their information--all of the tools can be viewed and accessed on one screen so that users don't have to switch between applications and interfaces. For example, a customer call center might have several different applications to see customer reviews, social media feeds, and customer data. Each one of these applications are interacted with through web browsers. If the information is in a language that the user doesn't speak, however, a separate application often needs to be pulled up to translate text. Web browser plugins enable customization of this user experience.
