  • Bring your own hyperparameter optimization algorithm on Amazon SageMaker
    by Shreyas Subramanian on March 15, 2019 at 5:43 pm

    In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to implement custom, state-of-the-art hyperparameter optimization (HPO) algorithms to tune models on Amazon SageMaker. Amazon SageMaker includes a built-in HPO algorithm, but provides the flexibility to use your own HPO algorithm. We’ll provide you with a framework to incorporate an HPO algorithm that you choose. However, before we […]

  • 'I looked like a clown': the truth about shopping on Instagram

    Our class of eight Scholars (out of 550 applicants) brings together collective expertise in literature, philosophy, cell biology, statistics, economics, quantum physics, and business innovation. Our Scholars are applying these specializations to current AI research and documenting their progress as they continue to grow as machine learning practitioners. […]

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.
