Event Details

Every day brings new and advanced AI development tools for everything from advanced algorithms in adaptive learning and neural networks to hardware optimized libraries for GPUs and TPUs. However, this vast array of technologies can become challenging to navigate for those interested in building AI capabilities into their applications.

In this talk, we show how to build effective AI features for your applications using tools available in the Amazon cloud. We will take a common business use case and show you how to take the raw data and turn it into a fully deployed and managed AI service in the cloud - with the steps in between (data upload, model training, model validation, deployment, application integration). You will learn how to build an AI and integrate it into your application. We will use AWS as the base for our exercises. All datasets are public and will be provided for the participants' access.
