AI News, re:Invent Guide: Conversational AI artificial intelligence

How to harness the power of AI on AWS

The concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has long been sensationalized to a fantastical degree in pop culture and movies.

The reality, however, is that the benefits offered by AI and machine learning (ML) aren’t just relevant to your organization, but very much within reach: AI and ML are in fact relatively simple concepts that can have a positive, significant impact on your business, no matter what industry you’re operating in.

These algorithms are ‘alive’ in the sense that they can actually improve themselves and develop over time when exposed to new information, helping data scientists to sort through huge amounts of data more efficiently and cost-effectively than any traditional alternative.

“The products and services provided by tech giants like Amazon allow organizations to start their Machine Learning projects with much lower barriers for entry and spend less time and budget on building new products or automating existing workflows.

It must be noted though that for some types of problems it makes sense to train custom models using Amazon SageMaker or even plain Python and TensorFlow instead of using existing pre-trained APIs because of higher flexibility and better results that can be achieved from custom ML modeling.”

Tapping into this kind of tech can help you optimize the customer experience like never before, whether that’s offering a more personalized customer journey or automating content moderation online, improving the quality of scientific or medical analytics, or forecasting demand more accurately in a move to cut costs more effectively.

The possibilities are endless and depend entirely on your specific business requirements and organizational goals, but can include: As specialist AWS recruiters, we’ve seen a marked increase in the number of businesses, from startups to larger enterprises, investing in AI to help drive their operations forward.
