How Amazon's Cloud arm AWS is democratising Machine Learning for all

How Amazon's Cloud arm AWS is democratising Machine Learning for all

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has taken square aim at the data centre by tying in VMware technology and rolling out two new services and on-premise hardware to help customers build and support hybrid clouds. To do this today, customers must build or lease ground antennas to communicate with the satellites. "By removing common challenges associated with reinforcement learning, giving developers the chance to have some fun, and providing them a complete autonomous model racing vehicle along with AWS machine learning services like Amazon SageMaker, we are putting every developer in position to experiment with reinforcement learning and machine learning". The systems can be as small as a single server and as large as multiple racks full of data-center gear.

VMware said that hybrid cloud service lets customers migrate VMware-based workloads to the cloud.

AWS had already announced some new updates to its cloud machine learning (ML) services, Amazon Polly, Amazon Translate and Amazon Transcribe. However, Outposts brings AWS' infrastructure into customer on-premises environments.

Amazon, which is starting with its own hardware, will deliver and install Outposts at customers' facilities and then provide maintenance, fix the hardware and automatically update the software.

Access to the AWS Ground Station is not self-service and so will require prospective clients to contact the AWS Ground Station team. This enables customers to review confirmed times in the console and cancel or reschedule prior to the scheduled contact time.

"We had a breakthrough a few months ago when we were working with a customer trying to get compute and storage from AWS on-premises, and connect back seamlessly with the rest of their AWS presence in the region closest to them, and we thought that could be a more generalised idea", Jassy said.

It's immutable, cryptographically verifiable, transparent, fast - allowing for the execution of double the amount of transactions as standard, it's scalable, and easy to use, Jassy explained. The fully autonomous race auto uses reinforcement learning models from SageMaker and allows the developers to race against each other for prizes in their own DeepRacer League.




DigitalGlobe is the world's leading provider of high-resolution Earth imagery, data and analysis.

The executive also outlined that AWS only spends resources on something when they truly "understand the problem" and when "this is something that a lot of companies need".

The Telecom industry is an ever-changing world where big ideas come along daily.

BlackSky's global monitoring and alerting services provide an easy, affordable way to observe, analyze, and act on timely and relevant insights about the planet.

AWS Security Hub is a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment so that customers can quickly see their AWS security and compliance state in one comprehensive view.

AWS also unveiled a breakthrough in building its own computer chip to handle certain AI processing jobs, which marks an attempt from Amazon to rely less on chip giant Intel.
