Adrian Hornsby, Technical Evangelist, AWS
Whether you’re just getting started with AI or you’re a deep learning expert, this session will provide a meaningful overview of how to get started with Artificial Intelligence on the AWS Cloud. In particular, we will explore AWS cloud-native machine learning and deep learning technologies that address a range of different use cases and needs. These include AWS Lex, which provides natural language understanding (NLU) and automatic speech recognition (ASR); Amazon Rekognition, which provides visual search and image recognition capabilities; Amazon Polly for text-to-speech (TTS) capabilities; and Amazon Machine Learning tools. The session will also cover the AWS Deep Learning AMI, which lets you run deep learning in the cloud at any scale. You can use launch instances of the AMI, pre-installed with open source deep learning engines (Apache MXNet, TensorFlow, Caffe, Theano, Torch and Keras), to run sophisticated AI models, experiment with new algorithms, and learn new deep learning skills and techniques; all backed by auto-scaling clusters of GPU-based instances.
