AWS makes building and securing data lakes easier

Starting on Wednesday afternoon, thousands of developers seized the chance to learn about reinforcement learning powered by Amazon SageMaker in workshops where they were also the first customers to receive AWS DeepRacer cars. Using AWS Ground Station, customers can save up to 80 percent of their ground station costs by paying for antenna access time on demand, and they can rely on AWS Ground Station's global footprint of ground stations to downlink data when and where they need it.

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

AWS Senior Vice President Charlie Bell explained in a statement how satellite data is vital "for building a wide range of important applications, but it is super complex and expensive to build and operate the infrastructure needed to do so".

AWS Outposts offers on-premise AWS compute and storage capabilities such as EC2 and EBS through fully-managed, configurable racks of AWS-designed infrastructure - which the cloud provider will install, maintain and replace, if necessary, according to the announcement.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is rolling out two new solutions created to enhance the transparency of corporate transactions for companies that have full audit requirements.

With the machine learning service, the cancer center was able to drastically reduce the time required to index patients who may be eligible for clinical trials based on their conditions and medical histories.

AWS presaged the launch of the new service earlier this month when it announced that its Amazon Comprehend, along with Amazon Transcribe and Amazon Translate, were HIPAA eligible services.

Of course, heavily-regulated industries such as the financial industry are unable to hand over sensitive data for privacy reasons and more recent overarching regulations like GDPR have made public cloud even less viable for European enterprise.

AWS Security Hub is a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment so that customers can quickly see their AWS security and compliance state in one comprehensive view.

"We're excited Amazon SageMaker is making it easier to try reinforcement learning techniques with real-world applications, and we're already experimenting with ways to use it for robotic applications".

The service also features an integrated development environment, a fully managed simulation service with pre-built virtual 3D worlds such as indoor rooms, retail stores, and race tracks so users can download, modify, and use these worlds in their simulations. They can also process their data using AWS services, like for analytics, storage, processing, and streaming. And Amazon Forecast is a service that generates custom machine learning models from historical data to create time-series forecasts.

Through the new natural language processing service, Amazon is taking a crack at solving a problem that has long burdened healthcare: how to mine actionable insights from messy, inconsistent information, the most common form of patient data.

The new service will come with VMWare-designed software which effectively mixes two technologies now favored by enterprise, but not necessarily deployed in their entireties- cloud and virtualization. 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.
