Machine Learning

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence. This year Amazon is releasing a number of products using machine learning and deep learning applications. DeepLens is machine learning enabled wireless camera that is pre-trained to detect certain objects and development platform that is integrated with the AWS cloud. DeepLens gives you hands-on experience using a physical camera to run real-time computer vision models. DeepLens works with the following AWS services: Amazon SageMaker, for model training and validation, AWS Lambda, for running interference against CNN models, and AWS Greengrass, for deploying updates and functions to your device. SageMaker is intended to make machine learning and data modeling easier and more accessible to the average developer. SageMaker supports all machine algorithms and frameworks, which makes it much easier for developers.
