On demand: The 2021 AWS Machine Learning Summit
Didn't get the opportunity to attend the summit earlier this month? Now available on demand: Presentations on the science of machine learning by leading scholars, a fireside chat with Andrew Ng, and more career-growth content.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) held a free virtual Machine Learning Summit on June 2, with the goal of bringing together customers, developers, and the science community to learn about advances in the practice of machine learning (ML).
The event began with a keynote from from Swami Sivasubramanian, AWS vice president of machine learning; Bratin Saha, vice president of AWS Machine Learning Services; and Yoelle Maarek, vice president of research science, Alexa Shopping.
Next up was a fireside chat. Andrew Ng, founder and CEO of Landing AI, and Sivasubramanian discussed the future of ML, the skills that are fundamental for the next generation of ML practitioners, and how to bridge the proof-of-concept-to-production gap in ML.
The Summit included four audience-focused tracks which ran throughout the day:
- Science of Machine Learning;
- Impact of Machine Learning;
- How Machine Learning Is Done; and
- Machine Learning — No Experience Required
Science of Machine Learning track fireside chat
The Science of Machine Learning track comprised six 30-minute presentations, and a fireside chat on deep learning and language with Amazon distinguished scientists Alex Smola and Bernhard Schölkopf, and Alexa AI senior principal scientist Dilek Hakkani-Tur.
