Amazon announces AWS DeepLens, 'world's first' deep learning wireless camera
At AWS Re:Invent, Amazon Web Services announced five new machine learning services. Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service for developers and data scientists to quickly build, train, deploy, and manage their own machine learning models. AWS' four new application services allow developers to build applications that "emulate human-like cognition," said the company. Amazon Transcribe is for converting speech to text; Amazon Translate is for translating text between languages; Amazon Comprehend is for understanding natural language; and, Amazon Rekognition Video is a new computer vision service for analyzing videos in batches and in real-time. AWS also introduced AWS DeepLens, which the company described as "a deep learning-enabled wireless video camera that can run real-time computer vision models to give developers hands-on experience with machine learning."
