Amazon Web Services announces new service to simplify building blockchains

"By removing common challenges associated with reinforcement learning, giving developers the chance to have some fun, and providing them a complete autonomous model racing vehicle along with AWS machine learning services like Amazon SageMaker, we are putting every developer in position to experiment with reinforcement learning and machine learning".

Some of AWS' newly launched services include a blockchain service, Amazon Managed Blockchain. which can manage transactions between organizations without a central party that is responsible for overseeing the activity. Without any previous experience, users can rapidly prototype deep neural network (DNN) models and begin training them in minutes, rather than weeks.

"We want to help all of our customers embrace machine learning, no matter their size, budget, experience, or skill level", said Swami Sivasubramanian, vice president, Amazon Machine Learning.

There's no word yet on the exact prices AWS will demand for its services, and Amazon isn't sharing how much it will cost them to build the satellite stations. This vehicle is now available to pre-order on Amazon at a special introductory price of $US249.

Developers who use Amazon Sagemaker may want to dip their toes into reinforcement learning, because they'll get to test their theories out on a 1/18th scale fully autonomous racecar. Today, AWS is launching two new blockchain services.

As a result, Amazon anticipates that healthcare organizations of all sizes and types will be able to harness the potential of unstructured data for a number of high-value use cases. It simplifies creating and managing scalable blockchain networks using the popular, open source Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric frameworks.

AWS also showcased the increasingly influential role of AI in traditional auto races during the conference. The Amazon Comprehend Medical system can evaluate "millions of clinical notes to extract and index medical conditions, medications, and choice of cancer therapeutic options, reducing the time to process each document from hours, to seconds".

One solution, he added, is that ML models and algorithms have to be benchmarked by the industry so that they remain as accurate as possible.

"The Amazon Managed Blockchain is going to eliminate the overhead cost required for the development of a new network". Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon. Forecasting is hard to do well because there are often so many inter-related factors (such as pricing, events, and even the weather). However, it will be used with the Amazon blockchain product to maintain a verifiable and complete history of data changes.

Yet another new Amazon SageMaker offering, SageMaker Neo, optimizes machine learning models to run faster and use less resources.
