Amazon Unveils Quantum Ledger Database and Managed Blockchain Services

Amazon to sell medical software

Amazon SageMaker was first announced past year and has since become one of the fastest growing services in AWS' growing arsenal, according to a blog by AWS' Shaun Ray, senior manager of developer relations.

Microsoft's Azure Stack is a similar pay-as-you-go hybrid model, running on customers" own hardware- this difference reflected in a lower price from "traditional' Azure.

Amazon plans to use reinforcement learning for more serious tasks in the future.

After the presentation, Jassy reflected the feedback the company had been getting; specifically that many companies simply didn't want (or couldn't afford) the potential upheaval that a move to a 100 percent cloud-based platform would entail. Ethereum, however, is not yet available for the development of the platform.

"Many healthcare customers are exploring new ways use the power of ML to advance their current workloads and transform how they provide care to patients, all while meeting the requirements of HIPAA", AWS concluded.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), a pioneer in cloud computing that has revolutionized entire economic sectors around the world, has entered the space and satellite market with the introduction of its Ground Station concept that is, in essence, a ground station as-a-service product for the global market. Amazon is focusing on to mitigating the time spent on analysing medical data of a patient.

On Monday, AWS launched Graviton processors for data centers to help customers manage costs with scale-out workloads.

Labeling data is a labor-intensive job because it has largely been done by hand. Some customers who are virtualised on VMware use on-premises VMware tools to manage their infrastructure on AWS. AWS RoboMaker connects the Robot Operating System to AWS' machine learning, monitoring and analytics services so robots can "stream data, navigate, communicate, comprehend and learn", the company said in its overview. Along with this broad range of services and devices, customers are working alongside Amazon's expert data scientists in the AWS ML Lab to implement real-life use cases. The solution allows one entity to own the ledger, but allow other organizations to access the data on it.

"Customers using Amazon SageMaker can use optimized algorithms offered in Amazon SageMaker, to run fully-managed MXNet, TensorFlow, PyTorch, and Chainer algorithms, or bring their own algorithms and models", Ray said.

Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that provides fast and reliable language translation, which could enable an organization to translate documents and other text as well as communication with patients in their preferred language. Those who know how much capacity they will need well in advance can book ahead and pay less for downlink time.

Jassy made a slew of announcements during his keynote speech, including some new AI services.

Jassy also announced a new AWS Marketplace for machine learning.

The winners of each race will advance to the AWS DeepRacer 2019 Championship Cup at next year's Re:invent conference.

Amazon, Google, Facebook et al are all in the business of personal and corporate data accumulation and management.
