Cultivating Diversity - the Keys to Unlocking Innovation
We'll take a look at how diversity increases innovation and the ways we can build more diverse teams to get an additional competitive advantage through a diverse organization. We're defining diversity in terms of inherent, acquired and cognitive traits. Attendees will understand the importance of building diverse teams to create higher performance, productivity, faster results and increased innovation.
Deep Learning on Amazon SageMaker
In this session, we’ll look at the different options available to run Deep Learning on Amazon SageMaker. SageMaker is a managed service that lets developers focus on training and deploying models without having to manage infrastructure. Through a number of code-level demos, we’ll explore different scenarios in detail. First, we’ll run the built-in algorithm for image classification. Then, we’ll run custom code on pre-installed environments for popular libraries such as TensorFlow, PyTorch or Apache MXNet. Finally, we’ll bring our own custom Deep Learning environment to SageMaker.
Cloud9, a deep dive into Amazon’s cloud based IDE
Have you ever wondered how we envision the future IDEs at Amazon? In this talk, Nikolai will do a deep dive on AWS Cloud9, a cloud-based IDE, and take you on a journey on how Cloud9 can help you today to build software with less distraction. Nikolai will share how you can use Cloud9 to develop on AWS and guide you through a range of real-world examples. You will explore areas such as Alexa development with you and leave the talk with a deeper understanding on how you can leverage Cloud9 to build delightful software.
Designing Voice Driven Experiences with Amazon Alexa
Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV provides a set of built-in abilities that enable customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way using voice. With the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), you can easily build your own skills for Alexa that run across any device and are hosted in the cloud (like AWS Lambda). Learn how developers are leveraging Alexa to reinvent experiences from finding a recipe for dinner to connecting the smart home to building voice capabilities into connected cars.
Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing @ Amazon
Data in various parts of the company is creating a tremendous number of opportunities for Machine Learning to improve existing and create novel customer experiences. Applications of Machine Learning range from Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing to Forecasting and Robotics. In this talk, I will give an overview of some of the problems we are tackling with ML focusing specifically on applications in natural language.
