  • Using Artificial Intelligence to Enhance Your Customer Experience Recorded: May 31 2017 38 mins
    Steve Turner, Solutions Architect, AWS
    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is enhancing many of the services that we interact with today. It can improve the customer experience of many services to make them more accessible, whilst providing information faster in a format that feels more natural.

    AWS provides a collection of highly scalable, pre-trained and pre-tuned managed AI services that you can adopt without any previous artificial intelligence or deep learning knowledge. In this webinar, Steve explains how to implement each of these services to improve the user journey for a flight booking and check-in system.

    The AWS solutions discussed here include Amazon Polly, which provides audio instructions for sight-impaired users and Amazon Rekognition, which provides an additional layer of security during the check-in process, matching users with customer data on file. Finally, Amazon Lex is used to enable customers to make future flight bookings using only their voices.

  • Security Automation: Spend Less Time Securing Your Applications Recorded: Apr 12 2017 55 mins
    Venkat, Nate
    As attackers become more sophisticated, web application developers need to constantly update their security configurations. Static firewall rules are no longer good enough. Developers need a way to deploy automated security that can learn from the application behavior and identify bad traffic patterns to detect bad bots or bad actors on the Internet. This session showcases some of the real-world customer use cases that use machine learning and AWS WAF (a web application firewall) with automated incident response and machine learning to automatically identify bad actors. We also present tutorials and code samples that show how customers can analyze traffic patterns and deploy new AWS WAF rules on the fly.
