  • Amazon SageMaker Automatic Model Tuning now supports early stopping of training jobs
    by Huibin Shen on December 13, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    In June 2018, we launched Amazon SageMaker Automatic Model Tuning, a feature that automatically finds well-performing hyperparameters to train a machine learning model with. Unlike model parameters learned during training, hyperparameters are set before the learning process begins. A typical example of the use of hyperparameters is the learning rate of stochastic gradient procedures. Using […]

  • Technologist Vivienne Ming: 'AI is a human right'
    by Ian Sample Science editor on December 7, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    Entrepreneur says Silicon Valley has inequality problem as it puts too much trust in young, white menThere is a surefire way to make Vivienne Ming flinch. It is a reaction she has to the bullish claims that big tech firms like to make. As federal investigations hit Facebook and global protests plague Google, the mantra remains.

She is a firm believer that AI will become an ever more powerful tool, after all. And what could be more west coast than a Human Potential Maximiser? Continue reading... […]

  • Build a serverless Twitter reader using AWS Fargate
    by Raja Mani on December 6, 2018 at 11:39 pm

    In a previous post, Ben Snively and Viral Desai showed us how to build a social media dashboard using serverless technology. The social media dashboard reads tweets with the #AWS hashtag, uses machine learning based services to do translation, and natural language processing (NLP) to determine topics, entities, and sentiment analysis. Finally, it aggregates this […]

  • Quantifying Generalization in Reinforcement Learning
    by OpenAI on December 6, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    We’re releasing a new training environment, CoinRun, that precisely quantifies an agent’s ability to transfer its experience to novel test environments. […]

Amazon AWS is the monster that pioneered Infrastructure as a Service, recently passed the $10B per year revenue run rate, and gobbled up a third of the IaaS market. AWS is launching new products, opening new data centers, and reducing prices at a dazzling rate–creating the need for a news organization that can keep pace. IT Brand Pulse responded with the AWS Daily News, the only publication 100% focused on covering news from around the world about Amazon AWS.
